Atta Kim (Gallery Caprice Horn, Berlin) - Atta Kim was born in Korea and studied at Changwon University and has been actively photographing since the mid-1980s. He has had solo shows at the Samsung Photo Gallery (Seoul), the Nikon Salon Gallery (Tokyo), the Yechong Gallery (Seoul), and has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including shows at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). In his recent book, The Museum Project, he commandeers average scenes - city streets, department stores, freight depots, and forests - and turns them into exhibition spaces. In selecting his subjects and isolating them in their boxes, Kim aims to «detach them from reality; to display and deconstruct at the same time my own concept of the world.» Kim compares his efforts to that of an archaeologist, sifting through the cultural strata in order to unearth and hold up exemplary objects for our contemplation. The Museum Project is comprised of a number of series, such as «War Memorial,» «Sex,» «Suicide,» and other human typologies, each intended to highlight a particular mode of behavior or belief.
