How do you find “a smooth exit” from the never-ending network of walls that give structure to systematic social injustices? What appears to some as freedom of choice and movement,
presents itself as a restricted space from which Others struggle to find an escape. In a direct, yet deeply personal way, Kay Yoon reflects on the absurd architecture of such hegemonic
systems. The artist sees these brutal processes as structures that turn social concepts like gender, identity, family, and culture into public barriers as well as oppressive spaces of private torment. The exhibition borrows its title “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation” from Stephen Hawking’s paper about the multiverse. It serves as a metaphor to explore the forces that control and consume the artist’s identity within spaces she battles to break down walls
and find “a smooth exit” from self-perpetuating structures of power.
