Intro
Like an unexpected moment in life, like the meaning of an unspoken word that exists between the lines, it is only when our vision entangles with our touch that the object manifests its form and starts to communicate. It's a moment that becomes meaningful.

Artist list

Ji Young Kim
Corrosion: Rotting and crumbling. External stimulations change its characters. Oxidation and deoxidation. Stacks of metal layers are cut and melted as if scorching in the fire of a burning heart. It may seem like an end but in fact the now of a new beginning.

'Everyone wishes to be meaningful. We want to fill our life with moments that can turn into meaningful memories. My work, manifesting the cycles of life, embodies a series of repeated filling and emptying processes - the metal is filled in layers or melted and refilled through the forging of my craft.
We often think that the story is over when the craftmanship is finished. But throughout this collection, every object that seems to be intact reveals a hidden device with simply a touch. It becomes an adornment that can fill someone’s void. This filling stretches and swells beyond cycles. Matter becomes an object, and an object becomes jewellery, not an end but a significant meaning.

I fill you as such,
You complete me in return,
We create a new purpose and are eager to start, at any moment.'

From Ji Young Kim to you, Fall of 2022.

The artist will present his work Between Lines in Seoul at the Korea Craft & Design Foundation Gallery from 16th November to 21st November 2022.
Ji Young Kim has been creating metal objects with small moving elements for the past few years. In this year’s work Between Lines, lines become facets, and the facets sometimes become lines and hide behind them. The work looks like a single line, but there are small moving pieces arranged inside.

The repetitive metalwork process for making simple moving elements, where countless pieces of the same shape are cut and resoldered, is a portrayal of our duel with time in everyday life. As we touch the artwork, the hidden small parts begin to unfold, and the piece expands and stretches, just like emotions that exist behind the curtain of life.

Opening Hours: 11 am - 6 pm.

Sponsor: Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture.
