Good Labor Bad Art: Gimhongsok at Plateau

To add to my growing list of favorite Korean artists (Kim Beom, Choi Jeong Hwa, Lee Ufan) is Gimhongsok, whose exhibition, “Good Labor Bad Art”, is in Samsung’s Plateau Gallery.

Canine Construction, which appears to be made of garbage bags yet upon close inspection is actually made of bronze, is wonderfully deceptive.

I also enjoyed this piece that my friend Kate pointed out (hurray for friends who tell us not to rush and encourage us to pause and read!) this speculative piece that reminds me a bit of Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. (Click on the photo to enlarge the text.)

The exhibition runs until May 26th. Go, go, go!
