Suki Seokyeong Kang: Black Mat Oriole


Out of stock

The first book on acclaimed South Korean multimedia artist Suki Seokyeong Kang, whose sculptures, paintings and videos explore the power and politics of space

Black Mat Oriole is the result of five years of research by South Korean artist Suki Seokyeong Kang (born 1977), who has combined sculpture, painting and video to create a multi-site installation that explores the power and politics of space.

Grounded in the histories of Korean craft and choreography, Kang’s multimedia project reassesses the use of geometry–particularly grids–in art-making activities in both traditional Korean art and Western abstraction. This book accompanies her first US museum exhibit at the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute of Contemporary Art. Alongside full-color photographs that capture the impressive scope of Kang’s installation, a foil-stamped cover and special graphic interpretations of Suki’s work by designers Sulki & Min, the book includes three critical essays on her work and an interview with the artist.
