We are glad to introduce our guest artists on our medium page. Enjoy our curation about the first guest Artist, Kim Kira
Kim Kira (1974–) is an artist who actively expresses the social responsibility of art and artists through performance, installation, and video.
The method of Kim’s visual language is grounded upon the gesture of editing various collected symbols through his own peculiar humor and metaphorical syntax, thereby discovering the relationship between modern society and individuals, and a venue of public dialogue.
Kim is interested in the socio-cultural position of an individual in the current capitalist society and the desire of a person and group in opposition to this. So, Kim continuously collaborates with professionals from different genres, forming a multilayer community. He explores the pivotal point where this process and results are combined together with visual art and eventually the labor of thought becomes the work.
About his NFT artwork, he quoted: ‘top building in the world’ was produced with a drawing technique for European medieval Engraving prints. Through this work, I focused on how individuals are wary, placed, and located in relation to social and cultural positions, and metaphorizes capitalist desires and landscapes as ‘top building in the world’ <2007>.
Kim Kira received his BFA and MA at the Kyoungwon University of the Fine Art and sculpture, in Sungnam, South Korea, and MA in fine art at Goldsmith College, University of London, U.K.
Kim actively expresses the social responsibility of art and artists through video and photography. He consistently intends to deliver messages that deal with political and historical controversy throughout his works.
He also examines the operational mechanism of capitalist society and thus comprehends the eccentric phenomenon of Korean society with consumerism and exploitation, excitement, and sarcasm. As an artisan of capitalism, Kim’s works are a great spectacle but somewhat empty, revealing every day of Korean society in an austere but intense way.
Kim’s work has been shown at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf 2013 (GER), 2009 King’s Lynn Arts Centre (UK), National Museum of Contemporary Art(Korea), Liverpool Biennial 2010(UK), Nanjing Museum (China) and etc.
