about Sun Rae Kim

Seúl (Corea del Sur), 1966

Looking at Sun Rae Kim’s work, the viewer enters a completely new vision of the material world. Under the influence of European art, in particular through artistic role models like Rebecca Horn and Kiki Smith, the examination of the human body was from the beginning an integral part of Sun Rae Kim’s work, which reflects both, the influence of postmodern western discourses about physicality on one hand and the influence of Asian thinking on the other.

Another basic element is her preoccupation with the relationship between the surface of things and their inner structure. She uses hanji, Korean traditional paper as well as modern industrial materials and objects trouvés. The materials and products are transformed through the manner in which they are treated, assembled, and deployed. Sun-Rae Kim studied at the art academy in Korea as well as in Germany. Her works have been exhibited in Europe and in Asia.
