Kim Hyosuk

Kim Hyosuk experiences and reproduces reality going through division and disintegration. Environmental change is a change in life with slight deviations that seem similar to the other. The image portraying change appears as an organic movement of the sharply fragmented world in which the structures of the city and reality are divided and recombined (fused). The artist's daily life is mostly spent on collecting images reproduced through various media. She picks up the pieces of the world that have been sprawled about in all directions. The collected images are cut, glued, and stitched together to constitute the artist's personal and common space-time experience. The self-replicating city that expands into the world like a web will look like an ominous maze to some, and a palace offering treasures to others. The inside of the palace is exposed like the internal organs of the world. An image that is repeatedly split and multiplied creates anxiety. It is an attempt to reproduce the ubiquitous things in the world beyond the range of average cognitive judgments, through the repeated and infinitely spreading movements of deconstruction, disconnection, connection, and substitution.
