Invisible Boundary - Zinu Kim, Installation, 2020

Invisible Boundary is inspired by Seolgyeong, paper cut-outs that can be found at shamanist ritual spaces in Korea. Seolgyeong consists of patterns, letters, and abstract shapes created through the use of special knife cuts. It is a symbol of the boundaries between the invisible world of the soul and the real world. The paper structure has two functions: a decoration for shamanist rituals and a protective line which seals evil souls and ghosts from the real world. 


Paper is an essential material throughout the history of painting in Asia. Practically it is used as part of the door in Asian architecture, so it is also considered to be a material that divides space. The paper, when cutting into certain patterns, is décor, an artwork itself, an architectural material, and a symbol of the invisible boundary between the real and invisible world.


In this exhibition, Invisible Boundary, Seolgyeong is presented as a paper installation with geometric patterns as well as a reinterpretation of an invisible Korean boundary. These paper cut-outs finally present a metaphor of the moment, facing the fear of invisible beings, religious awe, and an unpredictable future.


Zinu Kim: Berlin-based artist. He was born in 1979 in Seoul, South Korea. He studied Asian painting in Seoul and later painting in Hamburg.
