Na Kim: Bottomless Bag
Roma Publications, 2020
Published with Na Kim’s eponymous solo exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art, which is dedicated to letting children explore the artist’s visual language through works in various mediums, this book offers a better understanding of those works and her oeuvre as a whole. The title, ‘Bottomless Bag’, is borrowed from the mysterious bag in the animated film ‘Inside Out’. The bag contains endless odds and ends belonging to the main character, which link her to her memories. It also recalls the “Object Bag”, which was widely used for educational purposes in elementary schools in Korea during the 1980s. As such, the exhibition becomes Na Kim’s bag containing her collection of work.
