Artist Talk: Still Acts—Sora Kim in Conversation with Haeju Kim and Young-june Lee


Art Sonje Center presents three artist talks in the framework of Connect 1: Still Acts to be held on November 5, 9 and 12, 2016. The series of talks will take the form of conversations: the participating artists Seoyoung Chung, Sora Kim, and Lee Bul will be paired with Hyunjin Kim, Haeju Kim and Hiroki Azuma, who contributed to the exhibition catalog with their essays on each artist respectively. On November 9, 6 PM, Sora Kim in Conversation with Haeju Kim and Young-june Lee will take place, to explore Kim’s multifaceted, performative projects with focus on her solo Antarctica (2004), through which the artist experimented the possibility of relational approaches. The talk program will offer a chance to read in deep the artists’ works that engaged with our contemporary conditions of life since their earlier practices. Furthermore, it will provide discussions for a closer understanding of Connect 1: Still Acts’ thematic range as an exhibition that attempts to reinterpret the collection of the institution by re-generating past discourses on the current ground.
