Studio and field shootings, various noises and 3D renderings melt down deliberately around the contemplation of the current condition of life and death and desire for beliefs in Berlin- and Seoul-based artist Sylbee Kim’s Hollow Tombs. Playfulness with a somewhat morbid flair and the distinction of the human body from the traditional notion of humanity slowly gets eerie.
Sylbee Kim is a South Korean artist based in Berlin. Her video installations appropriate historical records and iconography to produce a parallel reality that proposes possibilities of a future audiovisual language. Kim had solo exhibitions at Mélange, Cologne; Nevan Contempo Prague and Insa Art Space Seoul among others. Kim participated in group exhibitions held at Times Art Center Berlin, Kunstverein Göttingen, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul, SeMA Biennale: Mediacity Seoul and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Kim is an awardee of Kulturfonds, the 7th Sindoh Artist Support Program and was resident at Gasworks, London. Currently Kim is working on her new work commissioned by Gwangju Biennale 2021.
Kim's video piece will be available to watch starting from today until January 4, 2020.
