Zone of Nowhere will be the first Australian solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed, South Korean-born multimedia artist Kimsooja.
For more than 30 years Kimsooja has dedicated her site-specific works to cultural and political issues facing our world. Kimsooja is perhaps best-known for her use of bottari – the traditional Korean bedcover used to wrap and protect personal belongings – as a symbol of structure and connection.
Heavily influenced by Buddhism, Zen, Confucianism and the age-old role of the artist as shaman, she creates lyrical installations that draw inspiration from everyday activities. The result is a practice that brings together the physical and the metaphysical. The exhibition will feature a new large-scale installation created especially for PICA’s vast central gallery space as well as an associated public art project on the streets of Perth.
Presented in association with Perth Festival
