Im goes by the title of artist-film director, blurring the line between fine art and film. While preparing for his solo exhibition, Im also released the documentary "Things That Do Us Part" in November. The documentary film is an extension project from Im's 2017 exhibition of the same name at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea.
Im's works are differentiated from typical documentaries as he collects individual narratives neglected in the course of history and reconstructs them by interweaving metaphorical and symbolic footage.
The artist shifted his interest to the people who had suffered tragic events in modern history and are still processing those events. That is the impetus of his new solo exhibition "Ghost Guide," currently displaying at The Page Gallery in Seongsu-dong, eastern Seoul.
