Living Spirits explores the practice of Makgeolli, Korean fermented rice wine, which survived many decades of prohibition through Japanese Occupation and military dictatorship. In making Makgeolli, raw ingredients nearing their expiration transform into an entirely different being through the process of fermentation – suggesting alchemy, a sense of magic. Living Spirits expands on ideas around lineage, desire, longing, care, resilience and sustenance through its consideration of recipes as instructional artefacts of memory and time.
Myung-Sun Kim: Living Spirits
Part of The Art of Propagation series
Wednesday, January 10, 7 – 9 pm
Henderson Brewery, 128A Sterling Rd.
The Art of Propagation
The Art of Propagation presents a monthly conversation about varied relationships between culture, food and social histories. The series features artists who broaden perspectives on art and culture through acts and projects of cultivation, fermentation and propagation.
The series will continue every second Wednesday of the month through March 2018 at Henderson Brewery, MOCA’s future neighbour on Sterling Rd.
Myung-Sun Kim’s work explores ideas of foodways, undocumented history, war, fiction, memory, trauma, resilience, and community care. She is interested in sharing of lived experiences and methodologies that may evoke a collective sense of empathy, a deeper understanding and a care for the differences that exist within our complex intercultural communities, in ways that provides sustenance.
