Launch First Editions | Dawoon Kim

On Thursday 14 September, artist Dawoon Kim will present her set of First Editions in the gallery of Foam. During this festive event, we will talk about the works, Kim's background in crossmedia design and her fascination with the small circle that we know as the dot or point.

You are welcome from 18.00 to 20.00 hrs at Foam Editions. Register for free.

About the works

The newest set of First Editions mixes analogue photography with graphic design. Maker Dawoon Kim studied crossmedia design at the ArtEZ in Enschede but in this work her love for photography shines through.

Dawoon Kim's set belongs to the series Between Dot and Dot which reflects the philosophical significance of the small circle that we know as a dot or point. Using analogue photographs, she explains the meaning she gives to the relationship and connection between two points. For Dawoon, a dot is the element that distinguishes the end and the beginning.

First Editions

The First Edition is a unique chance to buy work by a young talent for an attractive price. Foam Editions facilitates a connection between young photographers and (potential) collectors with this initiative. Previous First Editions were made by among others Paul Cupido, Sem Langendijk, Kevin Osepa, Lisette Appeldorn, Sarah van Rij and Suzette Bousema.

The two photos have an edition of 100 each and are sold for €95 each, including a wooden frame and art glass. This set of Dawoon Kim is exclusively for sale at Foam Editions, in the gallery and online for a limited period of time, until 19 November 2023.

First Edition sets are supported by Amsterdam-based frame maker L’Encadreur and framed in consultation with the artist.
