Theresa Hak Kyung Cha

Rehana Zaman @ Tenderpixel, Nov 29 – Jan 28

28 November 2016

Rehana Zaman is presenting solo exhibition Tell me the story Of all these things at London’s Tenderpixel, opening November 29 and running to January 28.

Spanning over the two floors of the gallery, a new video work will explore dislocation and fragmentation, taking its title from Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s novel Dictee that looks at lived experience through a process of disassembling.

With a particular focus on the experience of British Muslim women, the exhibition is “an accumulation of several narrative threads drawing together intimate conversations between the artist and her two sisters, ominous animated visions of a metamorphosing body, e-learning training on Prevent and staged, performed gestures.”

See the Tenderpixel website for details.**

Theresa Hak Kyung Cha @ Korean Cultural Centre

20 August 2013

Curated by Bea de Souza of The Agency Gallery, an open ended study of Korean multimedia artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, A Portrait in Fragments, will run at London’s Korean Cultural Centre, from September 24 to October 26. Featuring works and notes from her career, Theresa Cha’s life was cut tragically short in 1982, just days after the publication of her influential “auto-ethnography”, Dictée, which notably experimented across hypertext, juxtaposition, images and more.

Other contemporary artists, including Ruth Barker, Sujin Lee, Jefford Horrigan and Bada Song, will also be contributing to the exhibition, expanding on those questions around performance and film, Feminism and the ‘East meets West’ dialectic that Theresa Cha’s fragmented body of work provokes.**
