Myeongbeom Kim

Myeongbeom Kim plays with visual associations and surreal connotations of many an object, altering them to present new meaning to sometimes baffling but always brilliant effect. For example, a three-legged chair is supported by balloons (a favourite sculptural tool for Kim), keeling over after a duration while an axe is whittled from a young tree left mid-chop in a stump. Invariably exhibition-based pieces but occasionally a man hangs out in a boat with an oak tree for a mast. Illogical loveliness.
