Korean born artist Kimsooja is internationally known for her installations, films, photographs and performances. Her interest in fabrics references nomadic life in her trademark Bottari -bundles made of traditional Korean bedspreads, usually used to pack clothes.

This sense of wrapping and framing is also at the base of her video works, of which her multi channel pieces A Needle Woman and Mumbai: A Laundry Filed are the most striking examples. She is in conversation with film historian Maxa Zoller.

In collaboration with Art Monthly
