Christine Sun Kim

Oh Me Oh My


In this monograph, Christine Sun Kim's work is explored through essays, short texts and reflections, an interview and abundant large-scale images of the artist's work. Kim, whose first language is American Sign Language (ASL), uses elements from various information systems, such as musical notation, infographics and ASL, to develop a dryly humorous visual vocabulary in a variety of mediums, including performance, drawing, video, lectures and more. She aims to draw attention to the power imbalances between the hearing world and the Deaf community, as well as to celebrate the generative possibilities and creative energy that can arise from interactions between people with different positionalities and modes of communication.
