Exhibition

Interlacement: a Group Exhibition

September 30, 2021 - January 28, 2022
Opening Reception: September 30, 2021, 6 - 8 PM

In this group exhibition, three artists challenge and redefine the conventional idea of fiber and textile art by employing already-established techniques of weaving, embroidery, and assemblage with new materials and creating and inventing new forms. Featuring the work of Woomin Kim, Sui Park, and Jayoung Yoon.

Woomin Kim examines the active materiality of daily objects and urban landscapes through her textile and sculptural projects. Sui Park’s 3-dimensional organic forms are composed of industrial materials that resemble transitions and transformations in nature; they capture subtle but continuous changes in our emotions, sentiments, memories, and expectations. Jayoung Yoon weaves strands of her own hair into forms to create intricate sculptures that resemble fine nets or webs, giving her works a delicate transparency and evoking a feeling of intimacy and envelopment.

Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), our gallery is open only by appointment. The appointment must be made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled visit. To make an appointment, please contact info@koreasociety.org. Per New York City’s mandate, visitors are required to provide proof of at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine in order to visit the gallery. For more information, please click here.
