Time: 27 June 2017
Location: Graphic Art Department, Vilnius Academy of Arts
Artist’s book creator Chang-Soo Kim with his wife Jihyun Shim visited Graphic Art Department. This is the second time, when Chang-Soo Kim visited our Academy. During the first time he was making the artist’s book workshop with the international students.
In 2009 Prof. Chang-Soo Kim from the Kyungwon University of Arts and Design / South Korea, Prof. Wayne Andrew Crothers from the Musashino University of Arts / Japan – Australia and Prof. Joseph Johannes Visser from the Kampen Academy for Fine Arts / The Netherlands has made the “International Artist’s Book Workshop Vilnius 2009” for international students in Vilnius Academy of Arts. The project was in frames of “Vilnius – European Capital of Culture 2009”.
“The book is not only the form of literature art. The book can give us new, not traditional meanings, become the object of attention where the idea and recognition, expressions of feelings of creators are important. It happens when the artist touches the book and kind of distances it from commercial forms. Then the book gains the provocative, unexpected form and sometimes content.”
This time Prof. Chang-Soo Kim with Jihyun Shim visited Printmaking Workshop of Vilnius Academy.
Also we visited the Bernardinai Monastery corridor, (the old building of the Academy is in the monastery building) where there was a dining room for the students during the soviet time. Now there are opened amazing frescoes, 25 years ago they were painted with white colour.
