The Eye of the Beholder

It is said that the human body is a living vessel. Joon Hee Kim’s work consists of sculptural ceramics that reflect her interpretation of the human form as a vessel. Her work moves the ordinary into symbolic archetype, reconciling tradition from her culture to become a measure of human experience. She tackles the idea of beauty and joy by juxtaposing classical art and historical heritage with contemporary concerns. She thus creates multiple viewpoints within a global context.
