In the four-channel video installation Tear, Jay Rhee turns a simple action into a poignant gesture. Plain white fabric is stretched across four screens. Rhee slowly walks through the screens—from one edge of the frame to the other—ripping the fabric as she walks. The action is hypnotic, while the sound it produces is unnerving. Rhee cleverly breaks down a concise scene into one seemingly aggressive gesture that mirrors perseverance and strength in the face of adversity.
