The Site Generates the Sculpture:
A Conversation with Haesim Kim

by John K. Grande

Haesim Kim is one of Korea’s more adventurous sculptors. Having studied at Chung-Ang University in Seoul, she went on to the Chelsea College of Art & Design in London in 1999. Kim’s involvement with the art/nature group Yatoo and its earlier manifestation, known as the Four Seasons, led to some very innovative sculpture and performance interactions with nature, many occurring in remote island and mountain settings. She has also exhibited in Japan, Germany, and England. Many of Kim’s sculptures are interactive, inviting the public to use them as resting places. Her unusual blend of performance, interactivity, and sculpture adds a unique social element to environmentally based work.
