Atta Kim: Water Does Not Soak in Rain

Text by Iris Inhee Moon, Atta Kim, Jonathan Mill, Richard Vine.

Water Does Not Soak in Rain surveys 25 years of works from the internationally-acclaimed South Korean photographer Atta Kim. Since the mid-1980s, Kim (born 1956) has evolved and practiced a singular life-philosophy through a personal synthesis of the teachings of German philosopher Martin Heidegger, Armenian mystic G.I. Gurdjieff and Zen Buddhism. The works that Kim produced after ten years of formal training in these teachings--which include his series In der-Welt-sein (1991), Deconstruction (1995) and The Museum Project (1995-2002), in which he created a private museum by placing figures in Plexiglas boxes--are described by him as "byproducts" or expressions of this Weltanschauung. The guiding motto or aphorism of the On-Air project is simply this: "all things eventually disappear." Kim's most recent series compresses 10,000 images of a city into one image, and represents the project's culmination.
