Press release

Grand Projects is pleased to present a video installation, Sonata for Scavengers by Jee-Eun Kim.

Inspired by the aesthetics of Korean nouveau riche domestic spaces, the exhibition space is converted into a parlour room with a mishmash of household furniture and accessories, housing a video work about a janitor who has an ambiguous past. The video piece, “Janitor,” (2007) is a 27-minute video about a story of a Korean woman who works alternate shifts as a janitor between the National History Museum in Seoul and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Jee-Eun Kim is a Korean artist based in Malmo, Sweden.

The gallery is open Sundays 1—5 p.m. and by appointment.
