Floating HomeJieun-June Kim
What lies between Venus and Mars is the question I’ve been asking myself recently as I moved to Canada from Korea only few months ago. It’s two very different countries and to me, it feels like I moved from Mars to Venus. As an immigrant, experiencing difficulties and instabilities resulting from the dual nature of globalization, I want to express myself through the liminal space that lies between two different places in my painting. My experience of immigration forces me to straddle the boundary between my home in Seoul and my home in Toronto. It is in this in-between liminal space that different entities get mixed and create new form of hybrid world.
