poster for Gongsan Kim “Mausoleum”

This event has ended.

Kim, whose father fled from North to South Korea during the Korean War, notes the personal imprint of the schism between the two, and perceives her art as both a declaration of the injustices faced by the North Korean peoples, and a meditative ritual to ease their and her own grief.

The aesthetics of meditation have so often influenced conceptually minimalist art. In an intricate process for Kim, these aspects of mysticism, specifically Christian mysticism, semantically and emotionally reside at the center of the work. She further explains that while her work “deals with political issues,” she reduces its use of form and color so as to relay feelings “immensely and minimally.”
