This work imagines the beginnings of the universe. The jet-black object evokes the nothingness that exists in the prelude to everything, resembling a portal opening suddenly into another dimension. Circling around the work, phantom images of buildings and trees will flicker in the mirrors at the base of your feet and accumulate together with the void-like object, leading to a mysterious visual and sensory art experience.
Born 1957 in Daegu, South Korea. Kimsooja is a prominent contemporary artist who is currently based in Seoul and exhibits in museums and art festivals throughout the world. With work based in the theme of textiles from around the world, he expresses the complexity of his encounters with cultures and societies in far off places.
