Elegant and ethereal\, floating forms fill the space\, combi ning the materiality of twisted wire and beads\, crystals\, and pearls with the ephemeral qualities of light and shadow. There is a sense of poetry\, cathartic release\, and peaceful movement in the stillness of KeySook Geum& rsquo\;s works. Life-sized sculptures of dresses\, qipaos\, and other forms of fashion hover suspended in the air or draw from the walls\, solid yet w eightless. Their quietness and glamour display a marked femininity and femi nism\, a mixture of strength and transparency\, wire and light.

\n

Art + Shanghai Gallery&rsquo\;s winter 2014 exhibition Wire and Light: An E xhibition of Sculptures by KeySook Geum is Korean artist KeySook Geum& rsquo\;s first exhibition in Shanghai. Featuring a range of her life-sized fashion art sculptures\, Wire and Light is visual poetry of delica te &lsquo\;lace&rsquo\; and flowing &lsquo\;fabric&rsquo\; meticulously con structed from twisted wire and beads. Geum&rsquo\;s sculptures display a fu sion of Asian and Western aesthetics\, traditional and functional forms\, a nd contemporary flair\, displaying a sense of romanticism with fairytale-li ke glamor. Often taking the form of female garments\, her works transform o ur preconceived notions of fashion into dramatic statements. There is a tho ughtful eloquence to her work that entices viewers to step close\, to linge r\, and to marvel at the wire and light.
