News content

This year marked the 21st anniversary of Kiaf, a historical international art fair in Korea, coinciding with the arrival of the first edition of Frieze Seoul. Anticipated by the kickoff of the art week, this edition of the fair saw unmatched inbound of international visitors – contributing to the fervent atmosphere of local art professionals and aficionados.

The Antwerp-based Axel Vervoordt Gallery brings a fantastic solo presentation of Korean multi-disciplinary artist Kimsooja, bringing an exploration of her most representative work, spanning from a new large-scale installation, Deductive Object (2022), to her landmark Bottari series (1980-1990). Known for raising formalistic questions as well as navigating sensitive issues of the human condition, such as migration, poverty, violence, and the displaced self, Kimsooja works across video, installations, performance, and photography — she has been one of the leading Korean female artists active in the 80s and onwards and able to bring into the table revolutionary practices and ideas.
