As part of the symposium “Fluid Cosmologies I” at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Schering Stiftung will present the publication “Yunchul Kim: Carved Air”. The book with contributions by Yunchul Kim, art historian Lucía Ayala and astrophysicist Jaime E. Forero-Romero is published on the occasion of the exhibition “CARVED AIR” by Yunchul Kim, which is on display at the Schering Stiftung’s project space until December 1, 2012.
In his exhibition “CARVED AIR”, the Berlin-based Korean artist Yunchul Kim presents a series of electrochemical drawings as well as his latest fluid-kinetic sculptures, coupled to a cosmic ray detector. Conceived specifically for the project space of the Schering Stiftung, the works were created in cooperation with “Fluid Skies”, a working group consisting of Kim, the art historian Lucía Ayala and the astrophysicist Jaime E. Forero-Romero (www.fluid-skies.net).
The publication, edited by the curator of the exhibition, Lucía Ayala, is the 3rd volume of the Schering Stiftung’s publication series and documents the results of Fluid Skies’ collaboration since 2011. In her essay “Celestial Matter”, Lucía Ayala explains the basis of the concept of the fluid skies from the perspective of art and science history. In his contribution “Fluid Instabilities”, Jaime E. Forero-Romero discusses scientific terms from astrophysics such as dark matter and describes how looking at astrophysical phenomena through the eyes of an artist has altered his perception of science. In “Imaginary Matter”, Yunchul Kim delivers insights into his artistic exploration of astrophysical phenomena and the connection to art history and philosophy.
