The photographs of In Sook Kim (born 1969 in South Korea) examine how we give meaning to the rooms we live in, how we use furniture, décor, television, computers, sex, alcohol and pharmaceuticals in our futile attempts to fill inner voids--and how those rooms reflect these voids back at us. Kim's Edward Hopper-esque settings are constructed with a loving attention to detail, and lit with an eerie glow, so that they function as deliberately artificial mini-theatres in which human subjects seem intrusive or uneasy, perhaps imprisoned by society's designation of Saturday night as party night. These works were recently exhibited at New York's Gana Art Gallery, to much acclaim.
