I bring the weight to weightless fragments. 

    Some things do exist, although invisible. I, as an artist, shed light on how intangible fragments affect us. I have been shifting from place to place. I perceive the change in each living space through metaphysical concepts, like time difference, smell, language, and atmosphere. As I slowly assimilate and adjust to a new environment, my work forms itself accordingly by melting into its surrounding.

    The assemblage of organic materials is based on their potential for transformation and intrinsic properties. With their fleeting and fragile composition, I reconstruct conflicting moments between the individual and the external environment. Through visualizing these moments, I lead viewers to explore how intangible fragments in our ordinary affect us.

GHEEM Sookyoung is a South Korean artist who has made a significant impact on the international art scene with her original and powerful works. Her exhibition experience in cities around the world, including Venice, London, Paris and Korea, demonstrates her talent and ability to connect with audiences across many different cultures. On the occasion of “INTERFERENCES” organized by M.A.D.S. Art Gallery, the artist exhibits "Distance" and “Va et Vient", which are a perfect example of her unique and innovative approach to art. "Distance" is a performance piece that explores themes of separation and connection. The scene of two women tied and kept apart by two columns, with a rope winding around them, is a powerful and visually intense image.

The physical distance between the two women represents the emotional and psychological separation, which many of us can recognize and relate to in everyday life."Va et Vient", is another example of her unique and innovative approach to art. This wooden sculpture lying on the ground representing a half sphere explores themes of balance and tension. The precarious form of the sculpture creates a sense of tension and uncertainty, representing the delicate balance that exists in life and the struggle to maintain stability in a constantly changing world. GHEEM Sookyoung demonstrates her ability to create powerful visual images that evoke intense emotions and a deep connection with the audience. Her technique and style are unique and original, making her an artist to watch.
