ABOUT THE ARTIST
Whenever Kim rides a train packed with people, she feels as if humans are sometimes just mere objects. Propelled by invisible forces, we are sucked involuntarily into containers such as buses, trains and elevators, and swept off to the same places every day. People are transformed into passive automatons by the repetition of daily routines and the supremely efficient systems of the megalopolis. Without realizing it, we lose our senses and grow accustomed to staying within the confines of our roles as inanimate objects.View Profile »
Kim attempts to highlight the conflicts and alienation that inevitably arise from this lifestyle of ours with a humorous sensibility. The scenes she portrays are dramatized images based on the ironies she sees, where familiar subjects are thrown into a confused state or aspect by adjusting their size or positioning.
All play begins with imagination. It is through imagination that we can create playful spaces in the midst of humdrum reality. With a healthy dose of humor, Kim hopes to face the cruelties and absurdities of contemporary society head on, and send a message of encouragement and laughter to all.
