Enwezor’s show wouldn’t be complete without constant stick-shaking at the fossil fuel industries, and while there is plenty of commentary on the subject, Seoul-based artist Ayoung Kim does so with both profundity and sarcasm. Zepheth, Whale Oil from the Hanging Gardens to You, Shell 3 is a six-channel sound installation and chalkboard diagram, one that in a non-linear, non-chronological method traces our global dependence on oil—from whale hunting to the present day. Her installation, treated like a classroom with students’ chairs, features archival images as well as rounds of voices uttering and whispering—as if imparting memories or fragments of experiences—which is exactly Kim’s perspective of what history is. The work requires diving into and actively engaging with all the scattered mementos of days past, and its haunting presentation certainly leaves an impression that takes time to settle into, much like how events are catalogued in our minds. And as Kim just won the Seoul Museum of Art’s Emerging Artist Grant, something tells us that her newfound presence on the global stage is set to continue.
