Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For her series No Sleep, Hee Jin Kang photographs mattresses abandoned on the streets of New York City, mostly in Brooklyn. Kang's work reveals the unexpected beauty and strangeness of these found urban still lifes. The discarded beds are pathetic, monolithic, and architectural. They lay naked against walls and on curbs, sometimes seedy and sometimes luminous.

Hee Jin Kang, based in Brooklyn, New York, has exhibited her work internationally, including at the Hayward Gallery, London; the Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne; and Culturgest, Lisbon. No Sleep, with an introduction by Jonathan Ames, is her first monograph.

Synopsis:
