Yunchul Kim: Dawns, Mine, Crystal (London, England)
September 29 - November 3
The Korean Cultural Centre, London (KCCUK) presents Dawns, Mine, Crystal, the first UK solo exhibition from South Korean artist Yunchul Kim. The exhibition marks Kim’s nomination as ‘2018 Artist of the Year’, KCCUK’s major annual award programme. Working within the realms of contemporary art, science and visual effects, the exhibition comprises installations, drawings and sketchbooks and premieres the new work Cascade (2018), a joint commission by KCCUK, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool) and Arts at CERN.
Cascade consists of 18 meter-long interconnecting tubes, clear fluid continually circulates within them, through micro tunnels approximately two millimeters in diameter. As air is pushed through, microtunnels disappear and reappear, bringing to light the fundamental changes evoked when the relationship between matter and force is reassembled.
