  • The most philosophical of ATHICA’s exhibits to date, the diverse perspectives of these sixteen US artists inspires contemplation of thisuniversal issue. As the 500 BC philosopher Heraclitus noted, “Everything flows, nothing stands still.”
    The site-specific installation work of Young Kim forms the centerpiece of the exhibition. Kim is a widely exhibited artist and professor at West Virginia University. His impermanent portraits, beds of salt and clay on the floor, are vulnerable to the “slightest touch or breath of air.” The fragility of the work exemplifies the abruptness of life’s changes.
