An exhibition by Ah-Bin Shim for NEoN Digital Arts Festival.

Preview: Sunday 8 November, 2pm-4pm Hannah Maclure Centre

Seoul-based artist Ah-Bin Shim’s handmade minimalist forms are interwoven with animated digital sculptures and films, exploring desire, solitude, friction and futility in a frank and playful way. Amidst the simplification and candidness, flickers of humour arise; a conscious ironic stance towards the heavy seriousness of her subjects. Shim has been commissioned to create a new work that develops her ‘You & I’ series.

Shim originally studied in Dundee, gaining her BFA in Time Based Art and her MSc in Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design from 2000-2004.

‘2’ continues until Friday 12th February 2016.

NEoN, Scotland’s only digital arts festival, is heading North East of North Asia to bring the best of digital and electronic art from Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, and Taiwan to the city of Dundee from the 8th-14th November 2015.

Asia – home to two-thirds of the world’s population, has given us K-pop (Gangnam Style, the world’s most watched music video), Godzilla, the Sony Walkman, and the father of media art, Nam June Paik. There is extraordinary richness in contemporary digital artistic practice. Japanese popular culture dominates the West’s views of the East’s aesthetics, but NEoN seeks to dive deeper and cast a wider net across northern Asia to consider other nation’s digital creativity, including device art, sound, installation art, design, games, moving image, animation, net art and performance.
