Soun-Gui Kim: Lazy Clouds

ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Lorenzstraße 19, 76135 Karlsruhe

With the exhibition Soun-Gui Kim: “Lazy Clouds”, the ZKM presents the first comprehensive solo exhibition of Korean-French artist Soun-Gui Kim in Europe. The retrospective provides an overview of her work from the 1970s until today, ranging from the deconstruction of painting to performance, photography, film, video, and multimedia. In this diversity of media, temporality, the random, the processual and situational, interaction and participation, the playful, as well as the examination of one’s own existence, of language and poetry, represent the unifying aspects that run as threads through the artist’s entire oeuvre and thus also through the exhibition.

The exhibition title “Lazy Clouds” refers to a poem as well as a book of poems by the artist published in France. At the same time, it is as an example of her personal approach to life. Completely contrary to the prevailing capitalist-oriented productivity and performance regime, it is based on the concept of leisure as an artistic, creative, and philosophical principle. Like the clouds, that are completely free to find ever new forms in the sky, Soun-Gui Kim devotes herself to her art, far away from predefined patterns and conventions.
