Unfolding is the first overview of South Korean artist Kimsooja’s (born 1957) most significant sculptures, performances and interventions. A central element of her work is the bottari, a traditionally hand-sewn silk bedcover that also serves as a travel bag.
Published by Charta/Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa. Edited by Francesca Pasimi. Essays by Angela Vettese, Francesca Pasini, Eleanor Heartney, David Morgan, Nicolas Bourriaud, Harald Szeemann, Gerald Matt, Jonathan Goodman, Bernhard Fibicher and Keiji Nakamura.
The Korean artist Kimsooja is best known for her Bottari sculptures, made from colorful matrimonial bed covers, and for her video installations. The site-specific video To Breathe/Respirare, shown at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice immediately preceding productions of "Die Walkure" and "I Quatro Rusteghi," presents a spectrum of colors pulsing and gaining momentum until they reach the frenetic rhythm of the artist's breathing. Kimsooja includes a wide selection of work and of critical essays published over the past 10 years by such writers as Nicolas Bourriaud, Bernhard Fibicher, Gerald Matt, David Morgan, Keiji Nakamura and Harald Szeemann, as well as new contributions by Eleanor Heartney, Francesca Pasini and Angela Vettese. It is at once a monograph and a critical anthology.
