Art I like - Jukhee Kwon

Jukhee had amazing work in the 2011 degree show at Camberwell and is currently exhibiting at the October Gallery, after a previous solo show in London last year and elsewhere. She is Korean and now lives and works in Italy.

Some shots of the current show, which ends this week. Under her scalpel, a discarded book, or group of books, takes on new life as a monumental object -

Meticulously-shredded pages spilling out of the book's covers (or elsewhere) is the basis of her practice. Sometimes it achieves a touching intimacy -
Much of her work is online, but you appreciate the scale (and involvement) so much better when you see it in person!

Thanks for the link! I like the thoughts behind some of the instillations.

I really enjoyed this exhibition and was interested to learn in the talk that she cuts the pages using really small scissors
