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
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.
Edited by Gilles Coudert.
