Sejoon Kim

Sejoon Kim (1985, South Korea) likes to delve into himself. Why does he prefer certain forms and colours over others? Why does he impart certain meanings to objects? In pursuit of a reason, he reviews social, cultural and historical constructs surrounding him, leading to different forms of representation.

In his recent works, he looks at the proliferation of 'cute' culture in Asian countries and peels back its thin skin. His communicative objects embody an ambivalent aesthetic that allows people to feel an uncomfortable pleasure.

Another fundamental aspect of his work is that he loves to create objects in a labour-intensive manner, resulting in pieces with a unique character and rich in quality of detail.
