> Organiser 1st Seoul International Artists' Books Fair
> South Korea
> www.kba21.com
> My ten years of work comprises my research and exploration into the
> numerous possibilities and directions of book arts. In book arts,
> unlike the procedure of common mass-produced books, a book artist
> controls every step in the production of their books. Sometimes with
> accidentally obtained images, a book artist finds a narrative in the
> images and connection with the story and can link the images with the
> story in the book. My work is deeply influenced by the work of Susan
> Johanknechdt, Keith smith and Helen Douglas. 
> Narae Kim, artist statement
> Narae Kim was also the organiser of the 1st Seoul International
> Artists' Book Fair and has also been involved in organising Book Arts
