Ulrich Project Series: Jean Shin
August 26 - October 3, 2004

'Hide' by Jean Shin, 2004Brooklyn-based artist Jean Shin uses the cast off materials of everyday lifeóincluding broken umbrellas, empty bottles, used lottery tickets, and dryer lintóto create complex and laborious sculptures and site-specific installations that speak to the collective notion of memory as lived by countless anonymous individuals. Embodying a history of dysfunction, rejection, and abandonment, her massive accumulations of commonly discarded objects are transformed into dazzling constructions ripe with powerful emotional and social commentary.
