Kimsooja: To Breathe

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

30 Mar 201929 Sep 2019

Kimsooja transforms Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s historic chapel with “To Breathe“, an enthralling installation using light and mirrors and the latest in a series of projects exploring meditative qualities of space.

Kimsooja’s practice references and takes inspiration from traditional forms of female labour and craft, such as sewing and weaving, to investigate the role of women. Making quilts with her mother was the initial stimulus to adopting needlework as part of her practice, and since then (1983) the artist has travelled extensively, exploring the cultural importance of clothing, textiles and the associated acts of making.
