until 16.01. | #2894ARTatBerlin | Galerie Z22 shows from 7th November 2020 the solo show “Painstaking” by the artist Jinran Kim on the subject of material and spirituality – transmutations.
Art is a practice which reanimates the dead. Ashes and soot, mixed with water have been used since ancient times for painting and writing inks, in Asian cultures often the same thing. Brush strokes of burnt black evoking a tree in the wind, a waterfall, or a line of poetry. Indications of landscapes are evoked out of fine gauze. The delicate mesh is familiar to everyone: gauze bandages and the association with injury, wounding and healing is immediately apparent. Jinran Kim has long been drawn to household materials, using soap as a primary art material over many years: a room with soap floor, soap coffin, soap futon with light etc.
Since childhood we have been experimenting with different materials and associate them with certain memories and traumas that are reflected in our spiritual experience. It activates a certain chemical reaction, a tingling or shivering about the mutability of matter and form and the transience of life.
All events take place in accordance with the applicable hygiene regulations.
