Kim Beom | Self Accusation Glossary
1994 | pen on paper | 23 x 30 in (framed)

Kim Beom’s lovely and humorous pen drawing is representative of the celebrated catalogue of the internationally renowned artist. Self Accusation Glossary presents a rare opportunity to add the work of Kim to your collection – an art whose poetry resembles a self deprecation familiar to Winnipeg.

Kim Beom is a South Korean artist whose singular practice defies simple categorization. Working with drawing, painting, video, sculpture, and performance, Kim poetically uncovers and dismantles conventions surrounding pedagogy and education. Further working to question and invert preconceived notions of perspective, Kim often employs animism within his works, collapsing the boundaries of living beings and inanimate objects. Kim’s investigations of socio-political structures are characterized by his idiosyncratic sense of humour and a penchant for the absurd. The artist obtained a BFA and an MFA from Seoul National University, and a second MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. His work has been extensively featured in solo exhibitions including The School of Inversion, Hayward Gallery's Project Space, London; Animalia, REDCAT Gallery, Los Angeles; Objects Being Taught They are Nothing but Tools, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Continuing Studies, Plug In ICA, Winnipeg; and the survey exhibition Kim Beom at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. In addition, his work has been included in notable international exhibitions including the Istanbul Biennial, the Venice Biennale, and Media City Seoul.
