VAG: KIMSOOJA Unfolding


Serena created this portrait of a flower using pieces of scrap fabric at a Vancouver Art Gallery workshop. The students were asked to create their own artwork, drawing inspiration from their tour of an exhibition by Kimsooja, a Korean born, Paris and New York based artist.

The exhibition showcased many fabric bundles called "bottari" which Kimsooja created using bed covers and used clothing. Through the many beautiful installations in the exhibit, Kimsooja has taught us much about the expressive power of ordinary objects!
