Jihee Kim

followers

Jihee Kim is interested in the relationship between ‘text and image’ and she has been exploring her drawings by using abandoned books. The books Kim normally use as her sketchbooks are from the cities in which they were donated. This project began by selecting a certain sentence or word from the book. She creates automatic drawings that expand like dominos—her thoughts, memories, and experiences are the starting point that conjure up her imagery. Literature provides her with infinite sources to extract a multitude of ideas. The question of what should she draws pulls in completely unexpected images at times.

Jihee Kim received an MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2013, and a BFA from DongGuk University in Seoul in 2006.
