Myeongbeom Kim – Surreal Appearances

March 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I love this stuff by Myeongbeom Kim!

Educated in South Korea and the United States, Myeongbeom Kim produces otherworldly installations and sculpture works that juxtapose man-made elements with nature to create surreal dream spaces. Utilising suspension as a common motif, his works are constantly poised in a state of ambiguous wonderment. Within his installations, living things are held inside the fragile confines of light bulbs and helium balloons replace tree foliage, literally uplifting the tree and its roots.
Although this breaking down of the boundaries between artificiality and nature would generally engender a sense of unease, conveying the decline of natural phenomenon at the hands of manufactured goods, from Kim’s artistic perspective there is a rather a peaceful coexistence of these two binary opposites. It is a beautiful thing to behold.

My former work colleague Pieter runs the great Blog Next Wednesday it’s today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday and he is organizing a nice little event. Come along if you´re in Berlin! Here is what he writes about it:

It’s an exhibition format developed by Aram Bartholl, this is the manifest:

Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted. Any creative physical modification to Internet cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their email.)

So here are the details for the today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday SPEED SHOW:

Wednesday 21th of July 2010, 21:00 – 00:00

Nomad is opening his newest solo show, ‘Rainbow Coloured Tears of a Clown‘, at the CircleCulture Gallery. The gallery had a lot of nice things to say to us about the art, the artist, and this exhibition, but I think his flyer sums it up perfectly.

He is showing us that he his talented in a lot of various art styles. He became famous with his streetart. Especially as Mr. Friendly and his messages on rubbish bins. But in his exhibition he tells us about the history of art, in his personal way of expression.But of course street art elements are not missing.

The Opening reception was on october 30, 2009. The show is up through Jan. 9th.

Gipsstraße 11.
