Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork
Sep 9 – Nov 20
Opening: Saturday, Sep 11, 6–8pm
The gallery is pleased to present Olistostrome, our 2nd solo exhibition with Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork (formerly known as Gordon). Often aiming to reconfigure received hierarchies between audience, performer, and exhibition architecture, Gork’s hybrid practice exists in the slippery disciplinary interstice between sculpture and sound installation. Simultaneously drawing on and subverting the legacy of cybernetics– arguably a dominant logic of our contemporary moment– Gork’s systems of embodied feedback seek to mobilize the emancipatory potential latent within both everyday materials and infrastructures, as well as the simple act of listening.
Founded by Stephen Cheng, Empty Gallery showcases both established and emerging artists alongside a program of pioneering multimedia commissions, performances and music. With a special commitment to ephemeral, time-based and non-object-oriented practices, Empty Gallery is committed to fostering conversation across cultural, geographic, and medium-specific boundaries while serving as a regional hub for the flourishing East Asian art scene.
