“I wish to see the real art and meet real spirit, and to create something real with real people, and share it with every single person one to one, mostly discovering the ideas that have not been revealed or appreciated enough in this world.”- Kim Sooja

Kim Sooja‘s videos and installations blur the boundaries between aesthetics and transcendent experience through their use of repetitive actions, meditative practices, and serial forms. In many pieces, everyday actions—such as sewing or doing laundry—become two- and three-dimensional or performative activities. In videos that feature her in various personas (Needle Woman, Beggar Woman, Homeless Woman), she leads us to reflect on the human condition, offering open-ended perspectives through which she presents and questions reality.

Korean artist Kim Sooja reflects on her series of videotaped performances — “A Beggar Woman” and “A Homeless Woman” — realized in cities around the world: Cairo, Delhi, Lagos, and Mexico City.

“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 Sooja
