Intro
"My work introduces unconventional use of familiar artifacts into a world full of conventions. By assembling, grouping, clustering, and piling, the small and simple elements become complex, and give rise to the unexpected." - Yong Joo Kim

Artist list

Yong Joo Kim
From August 15th through September 28th, Mobilia Gallery is pleased to spotlight the innovative sculptural jewelry of Yong Joo Kim, created from ordinary materials such as velcro and thread.

"My work introduces unconventional use of familiar artifacts into a world full of conventions. By assembling, grouping, clustering, and piling, the small and simple elements become complex, and give rise to the unexpected. As the wearer approaches my work, the experience of perspective shifts and sudden realizations spark wonder, discovery, tension, joy and play. My investigation of creation, innovation, and transformation questions the definition of value, and provides a never-ending field for invention."
Yong Joo Kim
