Kidows Kim “Cutting mushrooms” Open Studio

  • ©Hubert Crabiēres


A France-based artist Kidows Kim will create a solo performance, influenced by the cult film “Tetsuo: The Iron Man” directed by Shinya Tsukamoto in 1989, whose main character gets eaten up his body by the cells of metal. Accompanied by sounds, voice, costumes and objects, the body of the performer will continue to mutate strangely, expressing an amorphous monstrousness generated by anxiety and anger under the collective unconsciousness over the individual consciousness.
Concentrating on the movements and expression of his body, Kim will develop the performance with the various materials such as images and costumes collected prior to the residency. His creation process and the result of the residency will be shared at the occasion of the open studio. After the residency in Kinosaki, he will continue with the creation in other residencies in France and others to give its premier in the season 2022/23.
