Artist: Kimsooja

Axel Vervoordt Gallery presents Korean multidisciplinary artist Kimsooja's (b.1957, Daegu) first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. The exhibition features the artist’s video and sound installation Thread Routes - Chapter III, a series of textile works with indigo Indian block prints, lightboxes recalling her critically acclaimed installations, and her most recent work using nanopolymer on glass, Meta-Painting.

Kimsooja’s artistic practice combines performance, video, photo, and site-specific installations that address formalistic questions of painting as well as existential issues of the human condition, such as migration, poverty, violence, and the displaced self. Her principle of ‘non-doing’ and ‘non-making’ follows an investigation of performance through modes of mobility and immobility, and inverts the notion of the artist as the predominant actor.
