About the work
Ahae Kim’s practice stems from an interest in contemplating memory in an aspect of perception. Experience of contemplating memories gives another layer of perception of the self and the world. It is ambiguous to distinguish between the self that reproduces memory of the memory and memory itself. It is a puzzle which repetitively opens and closes. Ahae recasts images from daily life as space to wander the sea of the puzzle. As a wanderer of life, Ahae tries to map this weird correspondence between memory, time, and perception.
