OPENING RECEPTION | "The Beginning and End of things." work by Sae Jun Kim

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 4th, 2-5pm

Exhibition Dates: March 4th - March 25th

 

“My sculptural work [in The Beginning and End of things. ] explores the composition of our contemporary environment through points of intersection between organic nature and the formulated landscapes of civilization. The natural characteristics of water, trees and earth are observed through experimental interactions with concrete, metal, carbon and other fabricated objects. Through conversion of these material, the understanding of formulated nature is further questioned with sense of place and time.” -Sae Jun Kim

He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is a recipient of the Shaping the Future award bestowed by the Remet corporation.
