Curated by Diana B. Wechsler, this solo show gathers performance photography and several bottari. Based on a Korean tradition, the bottari lays at the core of Kimsooja’s work as a symbol of both the world and migration. As part of Bienalsur 2021, the exhibition focuses on the nomadic aspects in the artist’s life and work.
