Kimsooja
 
Kimsooja (born 1957 in Taegu, Korea, lives and works in New York, Paris and Seoul) is an internationally acclaimed conceptual multi-media artist. Addressing issues of the displaced self and others, the artist's work combines performance, video, photo and installation using sound, light and Korean bedcovers. Kimsooja investigates questions concerning the conditions of humanity, while engaging issues of aesthetics, culture, politics, and the environment. Kimsooja explores materiality/immateriality, mobility/immobility, by non-making and non-doing, which inverts the notion of the artist as the predominant actor. The artist's journey evolves with the continuous unfolding of her concept of Bottari (bundle) and the notions of Needle and Mirror.
