To mark France's Korean year, a site-specific installation by the multidisciplinary conceptual artist Kimsooja invites viewers to partake in a transformative performance of light, sound, and the architecture of Centre Pompidou-Metz. 

For the past thirty years, Kimsooja has conceived a body of work often described as conceptual, humanist, and ethical. It transcends current issues of identity, migration, ideological and physical divide across people and borders, to find expression in a visual poetry and a life-performance resting beyond material conditions and the act of making. 

To Breathe is an invitation to contemplate. Its unfolding and mirroring of light into a fully visible iridescent spectrum establish a tri-dimensional tableau, a revelation of one's body in space and time that defies horizontality and verticality. Kimsooja's enduring examination of dualism in life and art transforms elements of painting into a new language of light, sound, and reflections in pursuit of totality.
