Kimsooja (b. 1957 in Daegu, South Korea) is a multimedia artist whose transcendent installations and video works incorporate repetitive actions, meditative practices, and serial forms as a means to explore the relationship between the body, spatiality, and memory. Her early use of Korean bottari has become a central element of her practice and serves as a vehicle to delve into existential questions relating to the relationship between life and death, cultural dislocation, and explorations of the self and other. This lecture will illuminate Kimsooja’s pioneering vision and focuses on elements of the artist’s dynamic practice that explore important and timely issues relating to gender, national identity, nature, and cosmogony.
