The famous Bottari, who catapulted her works to the international scene and limelight, uses fabric as the main material for her work. The organization of the exhibition includes the exhibition of the retrospective works and highlights of works of Kimsooja. All the works of Kimsooja revolve around, photography installation, performance, video and object based sculpture.
In all these modes of presenting her art, Kimsooja targets to address several issues that affect and pose as a challenge to the society. Her works normally question gender issues, issues affecting culture, issues concerning poverty and issues targeting global migration. The organization of the Vancouver Arts Gallery aims at giving people the chance to digest the art being displayed by Kimsooja on their own. It also opens the viewer’s minds to observe everyday activities from a three-dimension perspective. The everyday activities such as doing laundry and sewing are what she uses to create performance pieces. Her art also seeks to expose the viewers to a much deeper reflection of the human condition. The human condition involves maters to do with relationships, companionships not excluding mortality and birth.
At the organization of the Kimsooja unfolding, all categories of the works of Kimsooja were put in perspective. In the use of portraits and photographs to depict messages, Kimsooja selects specific environments and places herself strategically in the photos. ‘A Needle Woman’ portrays a perfect example of her motion-photographic work. A needle is perceived as an instrument that brings pain when it encounters the body and skin through piercing. However, the needle is also used as a symbol of continuity. It enables the continuity of the fabric by joining the fabric together using a thread as the intermediary. The fabric, the needle and the thread can all be used symbolically to depict the day-to-day occurrence in a meaningful way. The work of art depicted by Kimsooja in these pieces
