Kim Joon (b.1966, Korea) - Blue jean blues (2012)
The world is wide. And it is very deep. We don’t know much about the world, although are living in it. While living in the world, more precisely speaking, we hide it which includes our body and soul. However this concealed world is never hidden. Artists, moreover visual artists, don’t reveal the world which comes into their own sight. Rather, they open their sight wide to the concealed world and will always attempt to call this world in their own view. We are right to say the following. When we see the artist’s activity, catch the world. In other words, it comes into our sight. Artists are not to catch the world’s character, but ties up the world itself to their sight. It would be nice to call behaviors of such artists “awakening”. This “Awakening” is none other than arts and works. Also it is organizing the relationship between appreciators and artists. In Kim Joon’s “Blue Jean Blues”, this “Awakening” deepened little more than his previous works. (cf. Blue Jean Blues - The Concealed and Revealing World by Lee Sop) Many thanks to showslow for this Tumblr Monday to share with us Kim Joon’s fantastic sculpture & installation!

This man has had such an impact on my life. He’s changed certain views and I’m so intrigued by his thoughts, actions, words, and life. This man was great. He was amazing. I would’ve loved to meet him and just talk to him for a day. I cannot wait to go to Aberdeen this summer and stay for a while. I can’t even explain how excited I am for this.
