For Shinae Kim, the line is something that “happens”, that emerges out of the connection of two conceptual borders, be it only thought or drawn, be it on paper or beyond it. Here a sheet of paper is equivalent to a room which is – just like every other format – structured in a linear way by its borders. Shinae Kim makes these lines visible by using colour and describes the length and the width of a sheet of A4 paper. The lines cut from this paper are subsequently copied into the space of a sheet of A4 paper in a random manner where again and again they find themselves in new constellations.
