For the past 6 years, artist Yong Joo Kim has focused exclusively on working with one material, hook and loop fasteners. It is a material people often find unattractive, mundane, or insignificant, but through a series of dialogues with the material, she has continually produced works of art inspired by the qualities of beauty uncovered from within the material. Just as important as the beauty is the surprise. Most recently, she has limited herself to merely three distinct shapes of hook and loop fasteners. She wondered if she could survive with such harsh limitation.
