Ji-Yeon Kim


Compared to moving images, static pictures appear to be less attractive. However, static pictures often have a subtle mobility, which only becomes apparent through prolonged observation. The object in the image remains the same, yet also changes in various impressions. Depending on when and by whom the object is viewed, it can appear happy or sad. The subject determines the impressions of the object.

Ji-Yeon Kim's pictures are often full of colors and empty spaces. She uses these to emphasize the properties of the materials, leaving a space that the viewer can shape as they wish.
The artist wants the textual concepts and expressions of the picture to fade into the background so that the viewer can concentrate on emotional details and get a sense of how a static image can move.
