金顺基 KIM Soun-Gui
《彩票村 Lottery Village》
As one of the leading artists of modern Korean experimental art, KIM Soun-Gui first introduced experimental performance art and conceptual art to the Korean art scene in the late 1960s. From the start of her career, KIM incorporated philosophy and technology into her experimental practice in the form of various genres such as video, multimedia, sound art, performance, photography, and drawing.
The artist backpacked around the world, exploring both the art and culture of the East and the West. Especially during her stay in New York, she worked closely with video artists such as Nam June Paik, Ko Nakajima, Ira Schneider, and Frank Gillette, and starting from the late 1980s, she presented works that confronted issues relating to the structural changes in society caused by the spread of global capitalism and the Internet. She carried on to produce the Stock Exchange project—taking on a critical viewpoint of civilization in which the value of capital takes priority over all other values—and carried out interviews with world-renowned aestheticians, including Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy, to discuss the role of art in the neoliberal society.
