Kimsooja’s work transforms simple, everyday actions into moments of meditation and transcendence. 〈Archive of Mind〉 is a participatory installation that, with visitor collaboration, builds over the course of the exhibition. Peabody Essex Museum presents the North American premiere of this work, where museum visitors are encouraged to sit at the large work surface, empty their minds of distraction, and sink into the essentialized experience of forming a ball of clay with their own hands. Through the course of the exhibition, thousands of clay spheres are generated through small, individual gestures that reveal the emotional traces of their makers and cumulatively generate a complex array of texture, scale, and tone.
