KDK (Dokyun KIM)

Publisher: IANNBOOKS

Korean artist KDK printed 1555 photos shared on his instagram page between 2011 and 2017 for an exhibition titled “Instagram.” When all of the prints had been sold, the exhibition finished and each of the images was deleted off instagram, turning the purchased copy into a one-of-a-kind image. This massive book presents a catalogue of each of the 1555 images together with the names of the collectors who purchased them.
The photographs underwent a process of being shared freely on an open website, to be exhibited in a limited space, to become private property, before finally becoming part of a photobook. The project examines questions of possession, time and communication regarding analog and digital images.
