Daisy Kim‘s design work entitled “GAONOORI [CENTRALITY]: A bridge between cultural duality” will be featured in IDS Vancouver’s fan-favorite Prototype group juried exhibition.
Prototype is located next to the Studio North section in the south west corner of the show floor.
About GAONOORI [CENTRALITY]: A bridge between cultural duality:
“Gaonoori focuses on the notion of centrality. to maintain your center wherever you find yourself in the world. It is easy to be pulled to one side and lose balance as a whole. Gaonoori is a series of supports that reminds one to stay grounded. To bring forth Korean tradition of harmonizing with the surrounding space. Desires to be a compass for individuals lost in cultural duality. To some, it may be a reminder of a past tradition and to some an introduction to a tradition. This is not simply an artifact but a tool of engagement and rest. Creating a sacred atmosphere of tuning down which in turn urges one to be mindful of the space. Gaonoori is a reminiscence of a childhood memory and my definition of home that I lost touch of. This work holds the past, present and future. It allows one to see the center, where one can be the center and holds the center. The aim was to center on the emotion of “laon” meaning pleasure and the “nanoom”, the sharing of that pleasure. The actions grounded are sit, lean, rest, and support. each floor piece celebrates a certain action.”
