Art Projects 2020

Summer exhibition with Kimsooja

Opening May 10, 2020
Exhibition Period May 10–November 1, 2020
Curators Elisabeth Millqvist & Mattias Givell

Changes in this year's program. Wanås Konst presents the internationally acclaimed artist Kimsooja. With newly-produced projects in the landscape and inside the buildings, the sculpture park invites the visitors to a season that is both focused and grandiose. 

Exhibitions that focus on the meditative and the natural world

Kimsooja (born 1957 in South Korea) creates installations that are both colorful and meditative. She often returns to women’s work and handicrafts and to textiles in her artworks. She establishes parallels between the body and the needle as a metaphor for how we move through the world and connect geographies and cultures throughout our lives. She describes her practise:

"I’d like to make works that are like water and air, that cannot be owned but can be shared by everyone."

In 2006, at Magasin III in Stockholm, Sweden, she presented a comprehensive exhibition and displayed works with the cloth bundles of traditional Korean bottari, which she has used and explored for 25 years, and poetic, performative video works. In 2013, she represented South Korea at the Venice Biennale, and she has collaborated on exhibitions at the world’s leading art institutions. Kimsooja’s work can currently be experienced in the project Traversées in Poitiers as well as at the Peabody Essex Museum and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. She lives in New York, Paris, and Seoul. 

MISSION

Wanås Konst produces and communicates art that challenges and changes the view of society.

VISION

Contemporary art and culture for all. Everyone—regardless of background, capacity or functional variation—should have access to the art and the experience.

CORE VALUES

Excellence and accessibility. Everything produced and conveyed should be of the highest quality and accessible to all.
