Born in South Korea, Jonathan Kim is now based in Adelaide, South Australia. His multidisciplinary practice places deep importance on the relationship between a medium and its environmental factors, a concept named ‘Gong-Gan-Seong (Spatiality)’, inspired by Lee Ufan’s philosophy of ‘Man-Nam (Encounter)’. Kim’s work ‘Calico & Gesso on Canvas Series’ (2020) is included in S P A C E S, an exhibition that explores the way we navigate through and experience our surroundings. In this interview with curator Steph Cibich, Kim discusses the artwork and the driving force behind his practice.
S P A C E S is presented as part of the ART WORKS 2020 Emerging Curator Program, delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide.
