Yisu Kim

Yisu Kim tries to express a landscape of a dim Inframince floating over the surface of a lake amid fog. Her sentiment is supported by the concept of such Inframince , which is introduced by Marcel Duchamp . The term ‘inframince’ means of being extremely thin and tiny. This idea can be understood as a thing that has no proper identity, or it can be explained as the betweenness of unrecognizable area and its edges. This is a complicated, unstable conception. Her landscape exists on a permanent boundary unaccessible like the horizon. She recalls the boundary as a landscape of Inframince.
