IMAGE > Jonathan Kim, Concrete & Wood with Elastomeric I, 2018, elastomeric pipe insulation, found wooden block and found concrete, 43x45x44cm. Image courtesy of the artist.
Jonathan Kim’s practice places deep importance on the relationship between a medium and its environmental factors. The reconstructed structures made of found materials present various spatial concepts based on phenomenology. Kim's art is deeply inspired by Korean artist Lee Ufan’s theory of Man-Nam (Encounter).
This exhibition will feature works created during three residency programs; the Vacation Research program in University of South Australia; the British School at Rome Residency and the Sauerbier House Culture Exchange Artist in Residence program. These residencies were completed in 2019, after Kim won the Linden New Art Award at the Helpmann Academy graduate exhibition.
