김종구의 작업은 다양한 매체를 넘나들며 진행되는데, 특정매체가 중심이 되기 보다는 모든 작업들이 유기적으로 긴밀한 관계를 맺으며 전체를 이루는 특징을 보여준다. 그의 작업은 거대한 쇳덩어리를 깎아내는 노동집약적인 행위로부터 시작된다. 둔중한 쇳덩어리는 오랜 기간 그라인더로 깎아내는 작가의 행위를 거쳐 바닥에 조용히 내려앉는 가벼운 쇳가루로 변화된다. 작가는 이 쇳가루를 먹처럼 사용하여 바닥에 서예를 쓴다. 그가 쓴 서예는 바닥에 설치된 CC카메라를 통해 스크린에 투사되고 이를 통해 구현되는 영상설치 작품은
수평으로 펼쳐지는 풍경을 보여준다. 그리고 일정 기간이 지나면 사라지고 마는, 일시적으로만 존재할 뿐인 이 설치작품은 사진으로 기록된다.

김종구는 서울대학교에서 미술을 전공하였으며 런던의 Chelsea of Art & Design 에서 석사를 받았다. 그는 P.S.1 MOMA의 국제 레지던시 프로그램을 비롯한 Art OMI,Chateau de Grand Jardin등 여러 레지던시 프로그램에 참여하였으며, 광주비엔날레, 부산비엔날레, Re-Imagining Asia,Officina Asia and Art Spectrum 등의 국내외의 손꼽히는 전시에 참여해왔다. 그는 현재 서울에서 살며 작업중이다.
