Invisible surplus space: Art in urban settings

London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

Waste management and security industries are modern inventions inevitably created in the process of making a modern city, yet society endeavours to make the existence of these spaces invisible in the public realm.

In this talk, Jeong Hye Kim focuses on the practices of South Korean artists (such as Do Ho Suh and Sung Hwan Kim) who seek these invisible traces of urbanism, which have been removed or hidden as a result of turbulent historical change and regeneration.

Jeong Hye Kim is a researcher and editor/translator in Korea with a primary focus on architectural design and art in urban settings. Currently a research fellow at the UCL Urban Laboratory, funded by the Korea Arts Management Service, she is also a PhD candidate at The Bartlett inquiring into the identity and meaning of the Nanjido landfill park within the urban ecology of Seoul.
