Care package is an ongoing performance series that Kyoung eun Kang has developed over the last 14 years. For Handle with Care, Kang presents Care Package V, the latest performance in the series. It begins with the artist carrying a care package from her mother in South Korea. This package is unpacked over the course of a performance incorporating sound, objects, and movement. This performance invites the audience into the uniquely intimate relationship that has evolved between the artist and her mother over their period of long separation, exploring the notions of home, time, care, and distance. The Care Package series is one part of the artist's expansive practice created to better understand human nature and the bonds that tie us together.
