Kim, Soon-Im 2007
A person meets people while living. Those who remember each other hold a point in common in their souls. The story made by the time, space and energy held in common is an important motive of memory. I express the image of people from memory by my work. It is meeting people, remembering, creating their image and meeting again.
I from people I have met using needle and thread and soft materials of cotton and cloth. The cotton and cloth effectively express the soft and fluffy image of the skin and body. The tactile process of sewing leads me to discover unknown features of the person more deeply as I form their wrinkles, eyes, expressions and habits.
And I meet them again.
