Bahk Seon Ghi - Endless Enumeration in Space
Korean artist Bahk Seon Ghi creates sculptures from pieces of charcoal suspended from nylon filaments, everyday objects or simple geometric shapes based on sketches made in an apparently architectural approach.
Bahk fascinates his viewers with his large, site-specific installations. He has created tables, stairs, circles and picture frames, from which some pieces of charcoal seem to escape. The focus of this exhibition is on oversized drops of water falling to the ground; they are naturalistically distorted according to the physical law of gravity. The artist re-interprets mundane objects, presenting them to us in a context disassociated from their real environment. Apparently floating in a play of light and space, his installations embody the relationship between humans and nature.
