Almine Rech is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Minjung Kim during Gallery Weekend Beijing 2023. This is the artist's second solo exhibition with Almine Rech, on view from May 26 until June 11, 2023.
‘Trace’ presents a curated selection of works highlighting the paper manipulation and mark-making techniques which have made Minjung Kim’s oeuvre so compelling. Classically trained in calligraphy, Kim still retains the tools essential to the art — carbon-based inks and hanji paper made of mulberry fibers. Yet having lived in Italy for more than a decade, she arrived at the creative act of burning, ultimately to develop a unique craft that retains the calligrapher’s spirit while emphasizing the artist’s gesture and highlighting the transformative, simultaneously destructive nature of creation.
