Selfies from Christine Kim and Jamie Bradbury

Montreal, April 17, 2014 – Until May 11, Galerie Youn presents two solo exhibits. Opening reception with the artists Christine Kim and Jamie Bradbury saturday April 26th, 7 to 10 p.m.

Galerie Youn, 5226, boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montreal

Mastering the techniques of paper cutting, folding and crumpling, Kim uses flat paper to create three-dimensional works that combine illustration, collage and cut-out lace.
Faces and bodies transform into landscapes or take on architectural shapes. Buildings in ruins get a new life. Through its play of light and shadow, Christine Kim’s work takes direct inspiration from the actions of time and reveals the immutable reality of a perpetually changing world. 

Between Camps
In a very personal way, Jamie Bradbury explores the themes of globalization and multiculturalism while re-examining our prejudice. The cultural diversification of cities such as London, New York and Toronto creates new and interesting relationships between seemingly antagonistic cultures. The artist renegotiates and questions the boundaries between the psychological and physical spaces that enable the formation of the self and other. He focuses on the constant push/pull relationship between these two “inhabited spaces.” Potential entitlements, privilege, denial, and hypocrisy are thus revealed and trigger a reassessment.
