In the Studio with Gimhongsok


Step inside the playful studio of Gimhongsok. The artist sat down with Tina Kim to discuss his recent practice, inspirations, and the future of art made during the pandemic. Surrounded by—and at times inhabiting—his character sculptures, Gim touches on the jovial nature of his work. But beneath the humor, is a careful examination of the ethics of contemporary conceptual art practice, and an exercise in balancing the use of comical characters as commentary on social issues.
