A purse hangs; it sways as its being carried. Used. Its top opens up and a magnetic card emerges. A turnstile unlocks. The object anticipates human contact; it drives. “Think: the future of product based technology, the same that is as one with a global capitalist agenda. Small sculpture, keychain – art further democratizes and diversifies access and distribution of knowledge. Small sculpture, keychain- art indicative of your habits of consumption.” A once clear voice is now reduced to a tweet as the earphone is removed. An elevator beeps and purse and human are lifted. Increasingly brief moment of solace or a high jump.

Mimi’s work is self-embodied and stares. Navigating both the rapid obsolescence of new technologies and human mastery over such advances. Damp clay, glass and refurbished mechanic parts in toy-like iteration belong here with us in precarious arrangement, perhaps not always precarious but recently handled and seeking further contact.

New Works is proud to present High Jump, Mimi Bahk’s solo exhibition.
