Old clothing, losing lottery tickets, and mangled umbrellas are among the materials that Jean Shin crafts into intricate, poetic, and often improbable installations and sculptures. For Shin, cast-offs hold remnants of their former use: “I seek to recall an object’s past, as well as suggest its greater connection to our collective memories, desires, and failures,” she says. In Chemical Balance (2005-09) she constructed illuminated stalactite- and stalagmite-like sculptures out of thousands of empty prescription bottles, a commentary on the rampant consumption of medications.
