Kim Soonim has interest in the nature of various regions and the consequent stories about people. She observes, discovers and works to find local characteristics and stories in local nature and the faces of those who live in the region. She herself says that she is an artist and a Weaver. She expresses the discovered stories in various ways such as installation, sculpture, videos, photos, performances and drawings in combination with natural objects having characteristic of each region. Kim’s works are based on her residential area and evolve in a way that shows the area as they express the internal and external environment of the residential area and the stories of those who live there. She selects materials and determines a method of expression, depending on accepted stories, discovered phenomena, and local nature and environment. As she believes that an artist’s work can be finally completed only when it is expressed in behavior and response from audiences, and also when labor is harmonized with surrounding natural phenomena or environment, Kim will continue to conduct experiments to realize it.
