Camp #18

by Gongsan KIM - United States of America


In the sculptures through an elaborate system of personal references that thread throughout my many works, I create a series of cubes to honor the numerous individuals who have died in anonymity in North Korean political camps, without a trace or gravestone to mark their passing. The cube, symbolizing a coffin, was filled with thousands scorched or burnt burlap rolls. It is my hope that the history of 70 years is known, remembered, and announced. Through this process, I hope to demarcate each loss, wound together by the collective experiences of this history.
