The works of Mira Kim enable us to become aware of a magical moment where meanings interlock. Sometimes a backside and a frontside statement are brought together. Always together but never in one view. More often though, pictures are literally cut up, sliced and the old connotations of the photographs are used, on the one hand, to mingle among each other. On the other hand - in the contexts of their constructed forms, they will trigger the brain to form new sensations. Spaces are created; real spaces combining 2 and 3-dimensional forms in ever-changing perspectives - at first. It takes an empathic observer but on second sight Mira’s personal frenzy comes to a halt in our imagination and finally in our memory and then everything falls into place. Thus, the question of contemporariness is answered implicitly. 
Mira Kim's jewellery merges connotations in a way it makes one forget to have already been comfortably led out of the daily flood of images. To ponder the discovered space to enjoy an instant of contemplation.
