두루미/Red Crowned Crane by Enna Kim

Wednesday, April 14, 3 pm
두루미/Red Crowned Crane by Enna Kim

This self-reflective drawing exercise  guides the viewer through the artist’s drawing process and thoughts. Inspired by Korean folk paintings, Enna Kim will focus on the symbolism of each element, such as cranes, peach trees and lotuses, representing longevity, courage and good luck in Korean culture. With this activity, the artist encourages audiences to reflect on the meaning behind symbols and the physical act of drawing. The fluidness of this combined approach prompts participants to consider their own agency in relation to objects and images. 두루미/Red Crowned Crane is presented as part of Movement/Nature: Guided Exercises by Artists, an online project curated by OCADU’s Criticism and Curatorial Practice MFA program students.

Enna Kim is an interdisciplinary artist, designer and researcher based in Toronto. Enna explores the dimensions between her hyphenated Korean-Canadian identity through animation, projection mapping, textiles, performance art and movement. Her practice is an ongoing process of reconceptualizing the term diaspora. She uses technology as a way to decrypt it and shares personal stories of her immigrant family to retrace their cultural identities and promote healing. Enna has exhibited work for Toronto Korean Film Festival, InterAccess Gallery, Xpace Cultural Centre and Burning Man. She is a recipient of the Textile Arts Center: Textile Immersion Lab Scholarship. Enna Kim holds a BDes in Digital Futures from OCAD University and is currently pursuing an MA in the joint Communication and Culture program at Ryerson and York University.
