In celebrating 58th Venice Biennale 2019, Baahng & CO. presents SCENTS, a solo exhibition, by GuGu Kim.  The exhibition runs from May 9 to July 21, located at Santa Croce 556, 30135 Venezia VE, Italy.  Opening reception and the Artist Talk will be held at the exhibition site on Thursday, May 9, Noon – 3 PM.


Showcasing a group of finger paintings depicting nature, people, and various manifestations of Buddha, SCENTS offers a glimpse of journey to enlightenment in life by conferring pleasure of labor and humility.  Presenting scrims made up of endless finger stamps and illuminating lights from inwards, SCENTS is an artist’s attempt to visualize scents of universal beings and deities.  GUGu Kim is primarily known for finger paint art and uses his own recipe of medium; mixture of powdered quartz, soot, graphite, pastel, and India ink. Born 1970 in Korea and studied metallurgical engineering, spatial and interior design, he has shown in China, Germany, Japan, and USA.
