DESCRIPTION

Shine Artists: Ko Am : Cell3

19 Apr - 11 May 2013 

Cell3 | Tactile and inviting, Ko’s work is paradoxical – appearing simultaneously solid yet afloat, heavy yet buoyant. The hard, cold nature of metal is tempered and reformed by a unique addition: the organic, weightlessness of air. Each of the individual squares within the structures is air-blown by hand to become, in fact, an inflated, three-dimensional ‘cushion’. As such, metal becomes the medium through which Ko expresses softness, and the pieces possess a duality of form; the solidity of their substantial exterior is balanced by the delicacy of each of these minute, private pockets.
