Biography

KIM Inbai(b. 1978)'s works are characterized by the form of asking questions from a new perspective and suggesting a different sensory experience, which confronting the socially formed cognitive biases of humans and the limitations of acquiring spatiotemporal cognition by educating. In most cases, he creates sculptures by transforming the human body, and at which time the body is completely dehumanized and presented as a formative mass itself. From a large statue that signified a dignity of an authority; a clod that express a rounded sense of volume without detailed expression of eyes, nose, and mouth; and the rhythm of the body that contained by a wire across the space, the objects he creates are always dismissed or omitted, but it always implies a clue to visualize the whole imagery. Resemblance of human body, KIM Inbai’s sculpture series imply a social and cultural context or sometimes act as an abstract instrument by maximizing the basic elements of sculpture such as dot, line, volume, and texture. Through these processes, his sculpture becomes a point of contact with the external side, and at the same time it occupies a special point of constant transformation in the inner part, and which make their viewer to face a strange situation that is bordered by familiar but unfamiliar and conscious but unconscious.
