Jean Shin's current exhibition at Location One "And we move" is an installation that explores the nature of music and musical production by analyzing some of its fundamental structures: the score, the conductor, the magnetic tape on which is it is recorded. A site-specific work developed during her residency at Location One, "And we move" incorporates large-scale inkjet prints, magnetic tape, and a video projection depicting just the back of a conductor's shirt as he leads an orchestra, the folds undulating with each of his movements. We don't see his arms or the musicians, but the quiet passages and dramatic swells of the music (Ma Vlast (My Country), by Czech composer Bedrich Smetana, and Ibert's Flute Concerto) are expressed in the rippling shadows and folds of the fabric. The exhibition is on view at Location One through July 26, 2008.
Artist Jean Shin will talk about her work with Director of Location One's International Residency Program, Nathalie Anglès on Wednesday, July 16 at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
