Minkyung KIM (김민경) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


My works, getting started from the small questions whether the appearance of a person should be a real one, are divided into two parts, The camouflaged rabbit and Camouflaged selves. Those series have been developed together to express the camouflaged self. In the artwork The camouflaged rabbit, the pretending self is about the camouflaged or camouflaging selves. This is to express the ambiguity and suspiciousness. In the artwork Camouflaged selves, I tried to approach to the concept of persona while paying attention to the hair style that has been a cultural activities to express the human desire. As a result, I express the camouflaged self by adding a variety of hair styles to the face. Also I make the constructions flat by using the technology of photography and then glue hair relief to the face images to create constructions again. This technique may be considered as a camouflage in terms of expression method. I consider the masks and hair styles in the artworks as ‘Camouflaged’ to tell about the desire eruption and about the selves which labor to achieve self development and growth. I also think that the artworks should work as a tool of building up the personality of me as well as bring about the sympathy from the audience.
