Minjung Kim: The Light, The Shade, The Depth
Minjung Kim paints the endless expanse of light-flooded mountain landscapes in flowing, undulating movements. She does so with a consciousness of seventeenth and eighteenth century Japanese ink painting. Carried out on rice paper, the monochrome pantings are characterized by countless gradations staggered into the depths of the space. The black in the foreground surges into an ash grey. The ash grey lightens, vanishes. Regardless of whether black or red ink has been employed, the viewer inhales the shimmering distance. What is exceptional about these sheets is that each of them discovers its own visual focus.
This booklet was published on the occasion of the 2015 exhibition Minjung Kim: The Light, The Shade, The Depth. It includes a text by Jean-Christophe Ammann and images and details of the exhibited works.
