In the 1970s, a period of rapid modernization in Korea, JeoJa Island vanished while being used as dredged material for the construction of the Apgujeong Hyundai apartment. In 1995 and 2011, sand was deposited naturally at the JeoJa Island site and give rise to the island. However, this sand was used again as dredged material. The video focuses on the fact that sand continues to be deposited at the site to recreate traces of the place, and attempts to imagine the reappearance of JeoJa Island by inspecting and recording the movement of sand and water flow under the opaque surface.
Kyulim Kim mainly works as an audio-visual artist and has done site-specific videos. The work and research focus on the transitional and neglected spaces that arise from urban transformation and displacements. There has been a continuous interest in reconstructing the history of disappeared spaces and the spatiality found in the process of moving places. Recent works have been looking into matters that are inseparable from places and unraveling the movement of these matters and the things that disappear or remain due to this movement.
