In/Out - THIS & THAT: KYUNG SOO KIM & NG COLLECTIVE

We are very excited to bring you the first This&That for 2015! In this dreamy This&That American sisters Laura Naples and Kristen Giorgi – from NG Collective – and Korean photographer Kyung Soo Kim, court each other with bountiful colours in warm hues. Both layered and voluminous the soft palette is punctuated with inky black forms.

Kyung Soo Kim’s ‘Full Moon Story’ takes a fresh look at the ‘Hanbok’ (traditional Korean festival costume), provocative and intimate the subject seemingly unaware of the lens. Volumes of fabric in mauve, dusty pink, sage, light mustard and cream are gathered revealing petticoats and ruby red slippers. These static, cinematic, otherworldly princesses are hauntingly beautiful against such stark backgrounds.

NG Collective paintings are an ongoing narrative between two sisters. Abstract to the outsider, but filled with movement and colour, they are the dynamic representations of a family language.

Tradition flirts with the abstract, like the inner thoughts of Kyung Soo Kim’s subjects are laid bare in NG Collective’s paintings. Serene and reflective it’s a poignant match.
