Myeongbeom Kim was born 1976 in Busan, he currently lives and works in Seoul and Chicago. With his installations he intends to describe his own experience in a placid manner through private conversations with his surrounding environment. ‘I try to examine how my surrounding is perceived and remembered. To do this, I listen to a whisper from objects within my surroundings. I attempt and intimate, private dialogue with the world, trying to concretely present the way other things approach me, by using other mediums,’ he explains. Myeongbeom Kim mainly uses heterogeneous objects. He has consistently experienced his surrounding objects from the perspective of life, growth, and decline, which lends vitality to his work. ‘I see my environment from the viewpoint of life,’ he summarizes.
