Presented with the LA Phil

California-born, Berlin-based artist Christine Sun Kim explores concepts of sound, its visual representations, and how it is valued by society, from her perspective as part of the Deaf community. She uses performance, video, drawing, writing, and sound installation to uncover the depth and complexity of communication, including the politics of voice, listening, and language. Musical notation, written language, American Sign Language, and the use of the body are all recurring elements in her work. In this multimedia artist talk, Kim shares the thinking behind her practice and invites the audience to consider the concept of sound as it is felt, seen, and experienced.

“Barbed, witty, and provocative.”
