김 남 표


Nam Pyo Kim  (b. 1970)


김남표는 2000년부터 2006년까지 <집단 막>을 결성하여 5명의 작가와 함께 공동작품, 공동 프로젝트를 진행했다. 2006년 소마미술관 전시를 마지막으로 각자의 길을 간 이 그룹 “막”의 체험은 현재의 작업에서 중요한 밑바탕이 된다. 털 작업 역시 “막”시절 시작했던 것으로 털은 그에게 있어서는 “회화적 원천 체험”이다.


2005년 비닐갤러리에서 있었던 그의 첫 전시에서 김남표는 캔버스 전면에 털을 붙여서 만든 풍경화를 선보인 바 있다. 털을 한 방향으로 결을 잡고 포크 등으로 결을 거슬러서 그렸던 풍경은 달빛도 없던 날 밤, 사물을 보아야 했던 원시인들의 시각적인 체험을 연상시킨다.


김남표의 초기작품(1990년대 중후반~ )에서부터 캔버스에 여러 가지 재료를 ‘붙이는’ 형태의 모습들이 지속적으로 등장한다. 쇠 조각을 캔버스에 붙일 때도 있고 때로는 캔버스 자체를 셰이프드 캔버스(shaped canvas)로 변형시키기도 한다. 미완성작이라고 여겨질 정도의 흰 여백이나 작품의 맥락과 전혀 어울리지 않아 보이는 이질적인 물질들을 오브제로서 캔버스에 부착하는 것은 회화의 본질에 대한 답을 구하기 위한 작가의 질문이라고 볼 수 있다.

Nampyo Kim has built up his world of art since 2000 through the activities of the small group, “Mak”. Comprised of 5 people, including Nampyo Kim, the small artist group Mak conducted joint works and projects and exhibited its works . Although the group disbanded after its last show at Soma Art Museum in 2006, Nampyo Kim’s experience in Mak is an importanct foundation for his current works. Nampyo Kim's work involving hair also started in his Mak days and represented a "painting source experience" for him.


In his first exhibition the Vinyl Gallery in 2005, Nampyo Kim showed a landscape painting made by covering the entire canvas with fur. The painting using the texture of artificial hair looks different depending on the lighting conditions. It is named “instant” landscape because of the characteristics of the creative process itself. He first draws a part and then continues once he gets a new image from the previous part. Therefore, the entire canvas is an accumulation of the parts the artist felt from moment to moment. With the completion of the parts, the whole follows. This idea of not knowing what comes next is a concept Nampyo Kim as learned in Mak.


Since Kim's early works (mid/late 1990s~), the technique of "sticking" various materials to the canvas continues to appear. Sometimes a piece of iron is attached to the canvas, and sometimes the canvas itself is transformed into a shaped canvas. The white spaces that make the work look unfinished and the attached foreign materials that do not fit with the context of the work are the artist's way of questioning the essence of painting.

This project undertakes the motto of ‘Think Outside Borders’ ‘Think Outside the Box’ ‘Think into Action’.

워킹하우스뉴욕은 3가지 모토 (국경을 넘어선 사고; 틀을 깨는 사고; 표현하는 사고)를 가지고 프로젝트를 기획한다.


Think Outside Borders

Art narrows the gap between countries. It minimizes language barriers and enables us to communicate qualitatively and share complex emotions. We are committed to using art as an outpost for carrying out critical conversations with the world by placing art in contexts that matter.


예술은 언어를 뛰어 넘는 커뮤니케이션의 수단이다. 상이한 문화와 관습에서도 통합적인 사고를 하게 하며 우리의 복합적인 감정을 공유할 수 있게 한다. 워킹하우스뉴욕은 이러한 예술을 통해 현대사회와 국경을 초월한 의미있는 소통을 추구한다.

Think Outside Boxes

We leverage art as a learning platform by giving diverse audiences of the globe a window to narratives that are either overlooked, little understood in mainstream conversations, or distorted in stereotypes and create commonality. We also intend to design programmatic initiatives and exhibition strategies to support the kind of inclusion championed by our campaigns.


예술은 고정관념의 틀을 깨고 그동안 간과되어 왔던 담론을 이끌어 낼 수 있는 교육 플랫폼을 형성한다. 워킹하우스뉴욕은 전 세계의 다양한 청중에게 예술을 통해 대화의 창을 제공함으로써 사고의 시각을 넓히는 창의적인 교육 프로그램을 만들어 나아가는데에 목표가 있다.

Think into Action

We collaborate with the art world to shed light on the complexity of the human experience and give a platform to which it can be seen and heard by endeavoring this artistic documentation to include in the international cultural network as well as in institutions as loudspeakers. By encouraging creative practices and connecting art to life, we strive to experience art in our life.


예술은 복합적이고 추상적인 개념을 물리적으로 구현해내고 그것을 통해 인간내면을 재조명할 수 있는 기회를 준다. 워킹하우스뉴욕은 적극적인 국제적 교류를 통해 해외문화의 접근성과 이해관계를 좁혀나가고 예술이 우리의 삶에 깊숙히 내재할 수 있도록 기획하고 실현하도록 지지한다.
