Chung-Im Kim: Private Geometries

March 14 to April 2, 2023

From March 14 to April 2, 2023, the works of textile artist Chung-Im Kim are presented for the first time at La Guilde, in our window exhibition. Chung-Im Kim finds her inspiration in the intricate patterns offered by nature. Through compound forms, she reflects on geometry, mathematics, and symmetrical structures. Her textile works explore dimensions and architecture, and how flat surfaces can come to life in a new three-dimensional creation. Her installations seek to shake up orderly and tidy beauty, in order to be able to create a new result and new energies.
