Minjung Kim: Predestination

Exhibition Dates: September 29 – October 29, 2012
Reception for the artist: Saturday, September 29, 5:00-7:30 PM
Artist’s Talk: Saturday, September 29, 6:30 PM

Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Brentwood is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Minjung Kim.  This will be the first American showing of Kim’s works since her very successful solo exhibitions at Leslie Sacks Fine Art in 2003 and 2007. The artist will be in attendance at the reception to give a brief talk about her new works.

This exhibition will feature several pieces that embody the basic elements of ink, paper and fire found in the dense fields of rosettes in her earlier works, but in the new Predestination series she opens up her pieces, using fewer rosettes and scattering them across the picture plane. Strung together by delicate trails of black ink, these rosettes – made of singed, colored and collaged rice paper – create dynamic, asymmetrical constellations of color and form against a stark white background of handmade rice paper.

Kim’s first solo museum show outside of Korea was held in 2003 at the Modern Art Museum of Ascona, Switzerland. This followed the 2002 publication of Antonio d’Avossa’s Skira monograph, Minjung Kim. Kim’s works are held in the public collections of the Guan Shanyue Art Museum, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris, France, and the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, England. Kim’s first solo museum exhibition was held in 1991 at the Injae Art Museum, Gwangju, South Korea. Her works have also been exhibited at the Guan Shanyue Art Museum, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, Rome, Italy, Museum of Modern Art, Ascona, Switzerland, the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, England, Vittoriano Museum Complex, Rome, Italy, and the Fondazione Palazzo Bricherasio, Turin, Italy. Kim was also a featured artist in the 2009 Venice Biennale.

Minjung Kim was born in 1962 in Guangju, South Korea and currently lives and works in Italy, France and the United States. Kim holds an MFA from Hong Ik University where she studied both traditional East Asian painting and classical Western art. Beginning in 1991, Kim attended the Brera Academy, Milan, Italy, where she studied the work of modern European artists.
