Soojin Kang - To Be You, Whoever You Are
Join for the opening of To Be You, Whoever You Are, a solo exhibition of new textile sculpture by South Korean artist Soojin Kang.
Using the ritualistic actions of weaving, knotting, winding and unwinding to explore the sculptural possibilities of textiles, Kang transubstantiates raw materials into structures that retain unmistakeable traces of their biotic origins. In the artist’s hands, ‘thread is warm.’ Textiles become vascular, acting as capillaries generating the vital force of the strange organisms that she brings into being using hand-dyed linen, jute and silk.
