Opening February 2023

Kimsooja (b. 1957; Korea) is an internationally acclaimed conceptual multi-media artist whose practice combines performance, film, photo, and site-specific installation using textile, light, and sound. Her principle of ‘non-doing’ and ‘non-making’ are key to a conceptual and structural investigation of performance that inverts the notion of the artist as the predominant actor. Emphasizing stillness of mind, and drawing on the meditation practices inherent to Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, Kimsooja’s work brings us to an awareness of both self and others.

Meridiano is situated on the Oaxacan coast in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, offering an open framework for long-form, site-specific, and experimental exhibitions of artwork by artists working internationally and across disciplines. Founded by Nicholas Olney and Boris Vervoordt on the principles of dialogue and exchange, Meridiano’s contemporary art programming will be realized over two exhibitions per year.
