Gisoo Kim

With her photo collages, Gisoo Kim seeks to create new realities. She achieves this by assembling photographs of very different places and subjects manually – and by deliberately not using the computer or glue.  

What is succinctly described here as “manual” is a technique with which Gisoo Kim has earned herself a very special position in the art scene in recent years.

The pinpricks create traces, injuries even, in her photographs, which open up a new space for seeing. And the thread not only serves to connect the different photos; Gisoo Kim simultaneously uses it to create a graphic element. The embroidery that is created in this way gives the photo collages depth, varying new levels, balances and structures.

In this way, she puts together different places and situations that can be connected in real or surreal ways.
