About the Artwork

Sung Soo Kim has produced several series of artworks that illustrate his sense of isolation triggered by the differences that he experienced between Korea and France whilst living in France as an international student. In particular, this series features tangled straight lines of a steel structure that wrap around the outside of a glass pyramid. These images depict how modern society is becoming increasingly filled with emptiness despite its intricate facade growing more glamorous and intricate brought about by human desires.
