Kimsooja 'To Breathe' in Centre Pompidou Metz - "My work has always been a response to violence and inhumanity"

Kimsooja 'To Breathe' in Centre Pompidou Metz - "My work has always been a response to violence and inhumanity"

Visiting an exhibition preview can impede an uninhibited view at the art at hand, but in the event of a large-scale installation that opens to the invitees at a specific time, it can also have a magical shine, as if you enter and explore a shrine together. However, this heightened sense of wonder can only partly explain why I was overwhelmed by a wave of goose flesh, even before I fully set foot in Kimsooja’s latest installation. That is the impact her art can have.

The Power of the Artist - an interview with Alun Williams and Anne Barrault

The Power of the Artist - an interview with Alun Williams and Anne Barrault

Upon investigation, the work of Alun Williams can be said to question the phrase: “a rose by any other name…” Rather, it comes closer to Gertrude Stein’s famous sentence: “a rose is a rose is a rose”, by which she meant that using the name of something is enough to call to mind everything that an object or character represents.

Swimming with the sirens: Mikhail Karikis talks about SeaWomen


Jeju is a blackened island off the coast of Korea, an exotic upsurge of volcanic rock which in 2007 was named a World Heritage Site, thanks to its mysterious geology. It was here Greek/British artist Mikhail Karikis first heard the cry of the haenyeo. “I heard a very high-pitched sound coming from the sea. At first I thought it was a bird call or maybe seals,” he tells me via phone. “I asked my friend to stop the car and I saw a pod of black figures in the water.”

‘Losing the Compass’: the social and political dimension of textiles


From a contemporary point of view, textiles are a powerful source of political and social symbolism. Textile crafting such as embroiderers, quilts or tapestries are a universal form of creative expression, present in the tradition of many communities around the world. Their nature as decorative and domestic elements and also its link with manufacturing processes makes them objects of artistic and socio-political representation.

3 Signals to the Mermaid: An Inadequate Reading of Costume En Face by Tatsumi Hijikata and/or Moe Yamamoto


It is not a book you can read because it was never meant to be read. The publisher describes it as a playscript, but it seems highly unlikely that anyone could use it without supplementary knowledge to produce the piece it purports to script. Costume En Face was meant to be used by its writer, and perhaps by others doing the same kind of work, to take the work deeper. Period. It is an archival object rather than a traditional piece of writing.
