The solo exhibition "Soun-gui KIM: Lazy Clouds" by KIM Soun-Gui (b.1946) is on view at ZKM Karlsruhe in cooperation with Arario Gallery and MMCA Korea.
The title of the exhibition refers to a specific poem and a book of poetry by the artist which was published in France. At the same time, however, it also exemplifies her personal life plan: completely contrary to capitalist-oriented productivity and performance regime, it is based on the concept of idleness as an artistic, creative, and philosophical principle. Like the clouds that are completely free to find ever new forms in the sky, KIM devotes herself to her art, playfully, far away from predefined patterns and formalities.
Starting with works from the 1970s, the presentation will give a comprehensive overview of the artist’s work up to the present-day, ranging from the deconstruction of painting and photography to video and multimedia art.
