Woomin Kim
Fall 2018 Visual Artist Resident
September 10–December 21, 2018

Woomin Kim creates landscapes of urban anthropology using donated objects from local residents. Her recent projects have included building a large scale loom and using it to weave together locally collected objects, and weaving jewelry from antique stores with wool, both indicative of her interest in our interactions with the objects, materials and products that make up contemporary material culture.

At BCA, Kim plans to develop a new installation that will involve building several freestanding frames based on the structure of the tapestry loom. After collecting sweaters from members of the community, she will unravel the threads and tie the strings vertically to the frame as warps. She will then collect old jewelry, fabric and small accessories from local individuals, and weave them into the frame as well. The finished fabrics will stay mounted in the original frame like standing banners containing abstract images made from various materials and fabrics.
