REVIEW: Sung Hwan Kim @ Artsonje Center, Seoul

Dec 9, 2014 5:45AM

“Life of Always a Mirror,” comprising of three video works as well as installations and a performance, was the largest solo exhibition of New York-based artist Sung Hwan Kim to be held in South Korea. In the ever unpredictable, witty and multi-sensory theatre created by the artist, the exhibition addressed the notion of multiplied, fragmented identities through Kim’s representations of the individual and collective past.

For this exhibition Kim redefined the second floor of Seoul’s Artsonje Center by unevenly dividing the space with narrow passages and oblique standing walls and objects. On the left corner was his earliest work in the show, A-DA-DA (2002).
