Yisu Kim tries to express a landscape of a dim Inframince floating over the surface of a lake amid fog. Her sentiment is supported by the concept of such Inframince.
The term ‘inframince’, which is introduced by Marcel Duchamp, means ‘of being extremely thin and tiny’. This idea can be understood as a thing that has no proper identity, or it can be explained as the between-ness of an unrecognizable area and its edges. This is a complicated, unstable conception. Kim’s landscapes exist on a permanent boundary, inaccessible like the horizon. Kim recalls the boundary as a landscape of Inframince.
Kim’s works has been shown around the world in galleries and other art institutions, the most recent one in the Hendrick Hamel Museum in Gorinchem, the Netherlands. Her work is to be found in private and public collections.
Kim holds an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute of Art & Design (USA) an B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Sungshin Women’s University (S-Korea). She lives and works in Seoul, S-Korea
