Yunchul Kim: Gyre, Korea Pavilion

Arts Council Korea (ARKO) presents “Gyre,” a solo exhibition by Yunchul Kim at the Korean Pavilion in Venice. The show, curated by Young-chul Lee, includes a series of five large-scale, kinetic installations and a site-specific wall drawing reflecting Kim’s transdisciplinary practice spanning art, literature, mythology, philosophy and science. The works reflect three themes: “The Swollen Suns,” “The Path of Gods,” and “The Great Outdoors.”

“The Swollen Suns” conveys the swelling and scattering of the sun at the end of its life and the emergence of new planets from its debris; “The Path of Gods” is derived from the traditional Chinese characters (신경神經), literally translated as “divine pathways;” “The Great Outdoors” presents the remnants and symptoms of a world in such dynamic flow that it transcends all possible forms of perception.

An accompanying catalog for the exhibition will launch in September 2022 with an artist talk and performance.
