"The Path Which Leads to Center 18-05" Contemporary Korean Textile Sculpture

2017

$9,000

About

"The path which leads to center 18-05" 17” x 17” x 6 1/2” 2017. This piece is by Chang Yeonsoon (b. 1950), a Korean textile artist who specializes in sculptural fiber works. In much of her work, Yeonsoon dyes her fibers with indigo. However, in making "The Path which Leads to Center 18-05" she used barberry root dye and 100% pure gold leaf. The process which Yeonsoon uses to apply the gold lead is a Korean technique called geumbak. Though geumbak is usually used with natural lacquer, Yeonsoon was able to create a new lacquer with gold leaf. Known for creating ethereal works of starched indigo, Yeonsoon was Artist of the Year at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul in 2008. She was a finalist for the Loewe prize in 2018. Her work has also been acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London; she is the first South Korean artist in that collection. “I have been studying philosophy and breathing meditation for the last 10 years because I am interested in Oriental philosophy. Chunjeein (天地人) means heaven, earth and human in the East. In the Book of changes (a chinese classic) say that the heaven is a circle, the earth is a square, and the human is a triangle.” --Chang Yeonsoon
