Red Barn Studio Artist-in-Residence: Fiber artist, Shin-hee Chin of McPherson, KS
Sunday, December 3
Shin-hee Chin originally from South Korea came to the United States in 1988. She says, “While this project has undergone several evolutions, ultimately, it sets out to explore the potential mixtures or cultural hybridization. The medium I chose, as well as the method I used to link it, reflect how I have come to view my identity and American culture. As I begin to see my ‘Asianness,’ not as intrinsic and immutable, but rather in constant flux, I conceive American culture as being molded by its carriers into new arrangements. The primary goal of the project is to produce several quilts by using old quilts which I obtained from friends and thrift shops. The slow, repetitive nature of stitching enables me to be more mindful of the present of time and the passage of time. I symbolically partake in creating a new synthesis, not as a passive and silenced woman but as an active maker of my own culture.”
