Taehoon Kim: Poem of a Boy Who Stopped Growing
April 25 – July 11, 2015
Brincka-Cross & North View Galleries
Opening Reception May 1, 5-8 pm (CDT)
This exhibition features ceramic sculptures by Taehoon Kim (1976 - ) South Korea. Taehoon’s work evokes a place between the subconscious and the evolution of substance. He uses materials, modified and hybrid, as a metaphor for amorphous communication with his creatures. The exhibition attempts to reveal and develop persuasive reflection on the essence of a man and its connection with creatures. His work engages with physical and emotional evolution of creatures. Taehoon was born in Korea and earned two Master of Fine Arts degrees at the Hongik University in Korea and School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Kim has exhibited both nationally and internationally and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
