Geometry of Breath
Kewenig is pleased to open the exhibition “Geometry of Breath” by Kimsooja on the occasion of the Gallery Weekend. The exhibition was planned by Michael O. Kewenig together with Kimsooja. Due to his recent passing away Kimsooja dedicates her exhibition at the Kewenig Gallery Berlin in commemoration of the gallerist.
The conceptual artist Kimsooja (born in 1957 in Daegu, South Korea) lives in New York, Seoul and recently in Berlin. For more than thirty years, she has dedicated her oeuvre to the themes of migration, the human condition and issues of the displayed self. In installations, performances, sculptures, videos and photographic works, she responds to the human condition with investigations into current cultural and political phenomena such as migration, cosmopolitanism and transculturalism in an increasingly globalized yet destructive world.
