At the exhibition’s entrance, visitors find imprints from Kimsooja’s fingers and the residue of her hand-holding moments in clay, which, despite their repetitive conceptual basis, are inherently and fundamentally different.
A hypnotic, heartbeat-like sound welcomes visitors and activates the space with a faint echo and its repetitive, mesmerising rhythm. Kimsooja invites the audience into a private universe in which she peacefully initiates quiet action, embracing and connecting those around her, engaging past and present, nature and architecture, and especially the inhabitants.
Kimsooja documents what she sees and experiences. For her, performance is an interference through not doing, not intervening, without making something, and showing ‘as it is’. Her work can be considered already made, with the emphasis on the prefix al: what she shows has a history, a singularity that she makes us aware of.
