Kim Seola

Kim Seola traces her thoughts and observations through forms unseen to the naked eye. With her keen interest in small existences, she casts her gaze at lifeless things such as burnt remains of firewood. To the artist, they are regarded as life forms. She records loss and perishment of frail creatures that easily escape our recognition and visualises the lost time and memory of the past including dust, feathers and unicellular organisms. While regarding every existence in the world as alive, she only focuses on keeping her thoughts on microorganisms without any narratives.
