Rudimentary video of the Jan. 7 opening of “Traces and Trajectories: Current Work by Ten Korean-American Artists.” It’s a vibrant contemporary show, addressing dualities/identities/and many other things, with standout work by Sumita Kim, Kloe Kang and others. There’s a brief interview with Honolulu’s Jinja Kim in it, talking about her seductive work “Bojagi Town.” The Flip’s uberbasic editing system doesn’t allow the control of volume level, so she’s kind of drowned out by Cho PD’s “Fever.” What do you think? Should I lose the Korean hip hop and just leave gallery murmurs as the soundtrack?

“Traces and Trajectories” is on view through Jan. 31 in the Academy Art Center at Linekona Gallery (Victoria Street between Beretania and Young streets, 532-8705). Lots of parking behind the building. The Art Center gallery is FREE: Perfect destination for Recession Weekends.
