Interview: Wednesday Kim

Luca Curci talks with artist Wednesday Kim during Contemporary Venice.

Born in 1985 in Seoul, Korea. She is a New York based artist who produces videos, installations, digital drawings and photographs. She studied Fine Arts at School Of Visual Arts in NYC. Most of her works are records of her thoughts, interests, dreams and incoherent mixture of her sub-consciousness. She connects the process of making her work with images in her sub-consciousness and sometimes with momentary catharsis.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?

Wednesday Kim – I recently moved to North Dakota so I am just experiencing the new town. I am currently working on a new video with other performer/artist, Angela Alba, which I filmed in NYC a month ago. This video will illustrate about funeral and death. Furthermore I am preparing for Pulse NYC in March and art festival in Dublin, Ireland in April. A video as a painting.

L. C. – What is art for you?

W. K. – Its a hole. A hole connects from inside to outside, outside to inside, a place to another place. Art always leads me from inside to outside of imaginations or vice-versa. Keeps coming out or going into some states of thinking or process. It’s a temptation. If there’s a hole in front of me, I have to take a look into it or put my finger inside, also staring at it. I just can’t help it. It is always very unconscious too. A thing that you can imagine unconsciously for hours and hours.
