The space between objects are trajectories of your imagination
interactive meditation workshop with JUNGHUN KIM
Artist Junghun Kim will lead an interactive mediation workshop taking place inside his installation “The space between objects are trajectories of your imagination.”
This collective meditation session will depart from thinking about the balance of the five planetary elements, living conditions of unpolluted ancestral networks of flora and fauna, and the broken connectivity of their contemporary counterparts. During the session, we will learn how to combine our imagination and breath consciously to feel our souls and become part of the breathing history of the earth. We will travel as air and water particles to envision invisible ecological causalities whilst embodying human and nonhuman emotional trajectories.
Junghun Kim’s interactive installation presented in the exhibition is a platform and spiritual gateway through which we are invited to imagine and meditate on a wider network of multispecies and planetary conditions in this unbalanced ecological period.
The aim is to foster a mindset of solidarity with unequal matters and nonhuman beings through critical reflection on extractive anthropocentric systems, sympathetic spiritual imagination. Here, spiritual means a flexible and transformative fertilizer to access, embody, and care for a variety of life’s interactions while mindfully imagining and engaging as a decolonizing practice.

JUNGHUN KIM is a multidisciplinary artist. His work researches the effects of economic and technological development on humanitarian and ecological consequences in relation to the restless techno capital world. Kim's works are conceived as activation systems where poetic, spiritual, and political gestures reveal the dimension of causalities that have remained invisible to our anthropomorphic vision. While searching for regenerative ecological care and its distribution, his work guide audiences into interactive and collaborative environments.
