THE STORIES WE TELL OURSELVES
April 27 - June 3, 2023
Hong Kong — Odds and Ends is pleased to present The Stories We Tell Ourselves, a solo exhibition by Korean-American artist Dami Kim. This marks the gallery’s one year anniversary since opening in 2022, and Kim’s first solo exhibition at Odds and Ends gallery space, following her solo debut at Art Central 2022. Presenting a series of new abstract paintings, The Stories We Tell Ourselves will run from April 27th to June 3rd 2023, with an opening reception on April 27th (Thursday) from 6-9pm.
As a continuation from her previous body of work, Kim expands her art historical studies in The Stories We Tell Ourselves, delving deeper into the lingual power of allegorical and narrative paintings. To Kim, art is akin to anthropology, an investigation of what is quintessentially human. And the telling of human stories through art presents a view of the world that transcends the logical, physical and material, allowing her to create an elaborate world of narratives that challenge manufactured chronology and ideologically driven assumptions of artistic purposes.
