30sec film artists Vol.37 – Christine Kim

“You just pick up inspiration as you go, sometimes unconsciously”

Christine Kim‘s love for paper grows and grows. Although she developed a special affinity for drawing on stones, it was the paper that she coveted, bought, and stowed away. She became accustomed to climbing ladders, often hanging paper fragments and sculptures, wanting them to defy gravity. She is fascinated by the tension of a heavy stillness, a pregnant pause, and often describes her work in terms of volume and weight.
