New Yorkers consider New York as a centre of the art world, but I often find it quite provincial considering what’s going on in the whole world. In each city I stood still as a symbolic needle to reveal the human conditions in existential, geo-cultural and socio-political dimensions, as an axis of both space and time. Performing the world’s poetry with “Thread Routes”. In your video performance work “A Needle Woman” (1999-2001), you are standing meditatively still with your back facing the camera in the midst of people walking in bustling cities such as Tokyo, Cairo, New York, Delhi.

Kimsooja’s Venice Biennale installation, ‘To Breathe: Bottari’ allows nature to permeate the walls of an interior space transforming it into a physical and psychological sanctuary. Could you tell me how this piece came about? Kimsooja nacque a Taegu, in Corea del Sud, nel 1957. The whole process of my practice has always been a journey of searching for a self awareness. Her work is in the exhibition “TRA Edge of Becoming” at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice (June 4th- November 27th, 2011).

Most of the dominant western art world is still not willing to fully acknowledge the practices of the minorities that are left behind, although there are a few curators who are supportive in their curatorial practices. The idea was to create one performance in the urban environment with people and another one, alone in nature to juxtapose both environments next to each other. Could you describe your recent work “Thread Routes”, in which you are working with 16mm film and a team? However, all of those elements of spinning, weaving, wrapping and juxtaposing the structure of agricultural and natural landscapes have been explored in my sewn pieces since the 1980s; in that sense “Thread Routes” is a retrospective gaze towards my past practices and how I view the world. Is there a medium that you believe best expresses your ideas or you would like to explore further? However, it is stimulating to live in New York and maintain critical distance by keeping myself at the edge of all that. Kimsooja’s installation transformed the pavilion into a place of light, reflection and rainbows for the Biennale audience. The experience of living without power, electricity, heat and conveniences for one week with the whole community was a humbling and contemplative moment. By defining this link I try to create a dialogue that enriches the context of contemporary art and life. I think all of these experiences influenced me in one way or another, answering my questions: my life as a long interview with myself. kimsooja's korean pavilion at the 2013 venice art biennale is a living, breathing 'bottari'--a physical and psychological sanctuary for personal reflection.

The sound performance fills the pavilion and proposes a unified experience, together with the yang energy, which enters as sunlight, and extends all the way to the yin energy of the black hole in the anechoic chamber. I can also count as influences my condition as a woman and my endless questions on life, self and the structure of the world. At the same time, this special moment gave me an insight into the Korean pavilion project by encouraging me to construct an anechoic chamber to explore a state of complete darkness and soundlessness. 2019. Korean artist Kimsooja, known for her performance, video and installations based on displacement and humanity, is representing South Korea at the Venice Biennale 2013. The breathing sound performance was first experimented with at a former weaving factory in Lodz during Lodz Biennale, 2004. I can say that the Korean Pavilion was an extension of my To Breathe: A Mirror Woman (2006) installation at Crystal Palace, which was commissioned by Reina Sofia and curated by Olivia Maria Rubio. I tried to transform the entire pavilion into “a breathing bottari of light and sound”, “darkness and soundlessness” that inhales and exhales; as if the architecture itself were my body. Winslow | 12 Jul 2013. In this immaterial and non-making approach, the visual knowledge of infinite reflection in the main space—which is constructed from purely natural light that breathes within the pavilion, finds a counterpoint in the completely dark anechoic chamber of the ‘unknown’ or ‘unseen’ that reveals human ‘ignorance’.

Discovering new questions in different dimensions, I choose each medium based on what is the best possible way to present the idea behind the work and based on what I find to be the most critical and poignant way to reveal the notion that I wish to evolve, rather than focusing on a certain medium itself. I decided to continue this performance literally to meet everyone in the world, choosing to perform in eight metropolises in different continents around the world. Could you describe your background and why you became an artist? Rather, it became tied to notions of the body, to the condition of myself and women in general in Korean society, and also to human destiny at large. In the video for PBS Art21, you spoke about “finding transcendental moment and space” in your works in relation to the installation To Breathe at the Crystal Palace in Madrid.

Inside the pavilion, what we see is the unfolded sunlight that diffracts from the shadows of nature onto the skin of the architecture and then showers into the pavilion and is translated into a colour spectrum. “Thread Routes” is my first film series made from 16mm film, and it is divided into six chapters, each of which takes place in a different cultural zone around the world. Jun 16, 2013 - kimsooja's korean pavilion at the 2013 venice art biennale is a living, breathing 'bottari'--a physical and psychological sanctuary for personal reflection. For this piece, I considered my body as a weaving factory by understanding inhaling and exhaling as a weaving machine work, in both sound and action—humming as another fabric of breathing using only my nose without opening my mouth.

They also illustrate the similarities and differences in this gender oriented activity in different performative weaving, spinning and sewing cultures. Kimsooja, ‘Thread Routes – Chapter 1’, 2010, stills from 16mm film transferred to HD format, 26m:51s sound, courtesy of Kukje Gallery, Seoul and Kimsooja Studio. It is an action of wrapping bodies and memories. The light waves and the sound waves together with my humming and the inhaling and exhaling of my own breath, question the moment of life and death—while the mirrors bounce light off their surfaces—breathing in and out. The darkness in light and the light in darkness are stretched to an extreme into waves of light and sound.

Wanås Foundation - Wanås Konst, Sweden. Kimsooja, ‘To Breathe: Bottari’, 2013, mixed media installation, partial installation view of the Korean Pavilion, the 55th Venice Biennale. The grandness and the beauty of this palace enabled me to create the void, without installing any objects in it, by pushing the void of the palace all the way to the skin of the building, emptying it and reflecting the structure as a whole using the same translucent film on the glass of the windows, and creating a bottari of sound and light, filled with my breathing voices. I had to stop right at that moment and in that place, screaming inwardly. Art Radar is the only editorially independent online news source writing about contemporary art across Asia. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. I decided to leave the whole space empty without installing any objects in it, so that the installation expands the void to its maximum by taking the architecture of the Korean Pavilion itself as a Bottari [bundle]. 49th Venice Biennale, Arsenale, Venice. The way I place my body creates the nature of my body as a symbolic needle that can be seen and experienced, both as a self and an ‘other’; a barometer of each performed location as an axis of space and time. Art Radar spoke to the artist about her site-specific installation for the pavilion and the vision behind her work. I must say, although global influences tend to blend ways of living and perceptions and make all cities feel more and more similar to each other, there are still particular ways of living, perceptions, art scenes, cultures and histories that are unique to each city. Sometimes universal unconscious coincidences happen and it is interesting as it often reveals a truth of the world.

Kimsooja, ‘Lotus: Zone of Zero’, 2008, Rotunda at Galerie Ravenstein, Brussels, 2016 lotus lanterns, Tibetan, Gregorian, and Islamic chants, steel structure and cables. I understand how much the nature of the particular architectural elements of the Korean Pavilion has raised questions for the commissioners and invited artists in the past, and I was no exception. I wrote one as a painter and the other as a philosopher. The difference between the Crystal Palace piece and the Korean Pavilion is that for To Breathe: Bottari, I could create the relationship between light and darkness, which was a new evolution, and I was able to juxtapose visual knowledge with the unknown [and] unseen, by creating an anechoic chamber in complete darkness, which is called: To Breathe: Blackout. Kimsooja (Taegu, 1957) è un'artista sudcoreana.. Biografia. Photo by Yann Gachet. This certainly coincided with my immaterial way of approaching the site-specific project, and we tried to preserve the original structure of the pavilion while challenging its specific qualities and problems. Being invited to represent my own country’s national pavilion is the most exceptional recognition I can achieve as an artist who has considered herself in self-exile for a long time. It was significant that Hurricane Sandy happened in New York right at the moment when the commissioner of the Korean Pavilion and I were discussing this project.
