Suki Seokyeong Kang

Suki’s art consists of sculpture, painting, textile, video and performance. Although each work of art is specifically designed, it is connected with the others in evolutionary installations in which the body plays a key role. This South Korean artist draws on family memories which she shapes on the basis of traditional Korean culture, particularly painting and jeongganbo, an old Korean music scoring system. The result is conceptually autonomous works of art, but which are highlighted as a whole by the intervention of a performer or by the use of video. The museum’s latest acquisitions – the Grandmother Tower – tow #18-01 and Rove and Round – face, mat, belly #18-01 sculptures – are central to this vast exhibition.
