Exhibit: "Rendering the Body Present"
"Rendering the Body Present" - New work by Architect: Julie Kim
"Rending the Body Present"
Works by: Julie Kim
Exploring the relationship between the body, clothing and architecture, Julie Ju-Youn Kim has
designed work that bridges architecture and installation. This series of architectural studies
considers how the physical body is expressed via an articulated "house coat." The installation
invites you to enter its construct of simultaneously veiled, contained, and wrapped spaces. The
installation piece of the containers recalls the courtyard as well as the traditional dress of Saudi
and Korean cultures. Like those in the proposed architectural studies, this "courtyard" gives
presence to the body. The containers incorporate ideas that are central to the work, including
sequence, access, and boundaries. Both the installation and the theoretical architectural
proposals explore notions of gender and women's space.
Julie Ju-Youn Kim RA AIA is an Associate Professor at The Catholic University of America and
design principal in her firm, c2architecture studio (www.c2architecturestudio.com).
