Ji yong KIM
co-president of Plus-minus 1℃
She is a co-president of Plus-minus 1℃. Going deep
into a district called Mok 2-dong, Yangcheon-gu, she
carries out various actions and trials by the medium
of arts and culture to connect human beings and
bring meaningful movements from the relationships.
She dreams that artistic life becomes everyday life
by finding out special values as she does not draw
boundaries in arts but looks into its starting from tiny
discoveries in her daily routine, and she sometimes
put her life unfamiliarly by asking questions to the
universal life styles.
Plus-minus 1℃ designs activities to expand people’s
living space in the cities. They run a space where culture
can be created, failures are welcomed, and supports
various gatherings. They try to create many
projects starting from the secluded alleys so that
people can shape the life styles which resemble themselves.
Plus-minus 1℃ has been growing and changing by
working with the community members, whom they
have established ties through work and space. Under
the idea of ‘Be together,’ they believe that the city will
be formed once those various life styles which resemble
themselves are piled up. Soon it creates inherent
and sustainable culture ecosystem. That is how they
are enjoying their lives leisurely.
