Kim Schoen, "Untitled Sequence (2009)," Light-jet print Photographs
DIANE ROSENSTEIN FINE ART is pleased to announce the exhibition, Kim
Schoen, “Untitled Sequence (2009),” a presentation of photographs to be
shown at dianerosenstein.com – an alternative exhibition space and virtual
gallery based in Los Angeles. In "Untitled Sequence," Kim Schoen presents photographs of a contorting air puppet in front of a car dealership. The Polyflate product embodies the inflations and deflations of advertising, market fluctuations, and sales techniques. Schoen's interest lies in the mechanics and the latent poetics in contemporary culture. Her
photographs and video installations experiment with the rhetorics of
display, rendering vulnerable the aggressive monuments and artifacts of
commercial culture. Her work mines the anxieties of the individual as it
experiences the loss of the relevance of its physical body -- that which is singular and irreplaceable --within a culture of infinite exchangeability.
Kim Schoen is a video artist and photographer who lives and works in Los
Angeles. She earned her Masters in Philosophy from the Photography
Department at The Royal College of Art, London (2007) and her MFA in
Photography from California Institute of the Arts (2005). The winner of the RCA Society Thames & Hudson Art Book Prize (2007), Schoen has exhibited at Norma Mangione Gallery (Turin); Bank, LM Projects (Los Angeles); and The Whitechapel Gallery (London).
