The Surin Kim Power OBJ exhibition will run until July 31
Marking her debut, the Surin Kim Power OBJ exhibition will be hosted at Seoul’s REALATION SPACE gallery, featuring the South Korean artist’s most recent works in a number of different media forms that are simply breathtaking.
In order to realize her artistic vision, Kim creates sculptures from her imagination, highlighting and recognizing each one’s distinctive qualities. She uses digital tools to preserve and replicate physical sculptures online because they are ephemeral. Her work examines how opposites interact and expresses the intense feelings that sculptures convey in their quest for beauty. Kim’s work strives to bring gorgeous sculptures that don’t necessarily exist, to life.
“My sculptures dance in a way that they want to be recognized for their unique grammar,” says Kim. “But I can save their data and implement them online and reproduce them. I play with contradictions, also capture the desperate gestures of sculptures seeking beauty.”
Featuring over 20 sculptures using both 3D printing and UV printing technology, the Surin Kim Power OBJ exhibition is inspired by the Seokgatap and Dabotap stone pagoda structures located throughout Korea. The pieces are a variety of sizes, including large-scale works that show the artist’s experimental mindset. Kim’s dedication to sustainability is clear from the recycled plastic components used in the artworks.
On display from now until July 31, you can discover the alien-like sculptures of the Surin Kim Power OBJ exhibition at the REALATION SPACE gallery in Samseong-dong, Seoul. Check out the detailed images below to get a sneak peak at Kim’s extraordinary work.
