Minhee Kang employs conventional techniques while investigating non-conventional mediums in textile art. She re-configures every component of her medium: at times weaving or stitching patterns only to dismantle and rebuild, at other tearing up her medium and fabricating a new structure. These reconfigurations result in translucent sculptures, fragile in nature yet solid in form, that generate painterly interplays of shadow and light. Exploring the intersection between the physical and metaphysical, Minhee investigates internal emotional states through her work.
Minhee Kang (b. 1994, Seoul, South Korea) received her BFA in Textiles at Rhode Island School of Design in 2017. Recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition, Overview Effect, at Ttangsok Space of Art, Seoul, South Korea in June 2018, a group exhibition, Salon at Hepta, at Art ground Hepta, Seoul, South Korea in March 2018, and “Hands of Korea 2017” 23rd European Patchwork meeting at the Sainte-Marie- Aux- Mines, Alsace, France in September 2017.
