To breathe: Bottari, 55th Venice art biennal, Korean pavilion, 2013

“My work combines performance, video and installation addressing issues of the displaced self and others. I’ve been trying to bring together a conceptual, logical and structural investigation of performance through immobility that inverts the notion of the artist as the predominant actor. Refusing to draw a systematic play of contrasts into any sort of tension charged dialectical relationship, I instead try to achieve a delicate equilibrium that opposite poles are brought to the fore as a natural basis for harmony: inserting myself as both subject and object of the viewer’s gaze, an individual and an abstraction, a specific woman and every woman, instrument and actress, motionless and purposeful, balancing between presence and absence, wishing that the fact of what the eye sees is a truism.” Kim Soo Ja
