Kim Bumsu

12 April - 5 May 2019

Pontone Gallery is delighted to welcome the spectacular and meticulous works of Korean artist Kim Bumsu for a solo exhibition running from 12 April - 5 May 2019. 


Exhibited worldwide, Kim uses old and discarded Movie Film, cut up and re-arranged to create vast and complex collages that manipulate the light that passes through them from LED boxes behind. In doing so he means to stimulate the sentiment and nostalgia within the modern man, arousing compassion with, and romanticism of, what has disappeared into the past, expelled by the extreme finesse of digital culture and the continuous fluidity of the image world. By combining the dynamic flow of light with the static images in these films, we rediscover the vitality of film images.
