Ok Kim

Merge_Slanted Silver

$3,200.00

Description/

Kim’s Merge series was first conceptualised after visiting a Buddhist temple in Yangsan, South Korea. On the pathways to Korean temples, one often sees piles of stones called Makdoltap made by pilgrims who make wishes for good fortune when placing the stones on top of each other, taking care not to disturb the balance. Inspired by these vessels for personal prayers, the first pieces Kim made were multipurpose stools, side tables or art objects that can be stacked to create sculptures. Their slanted shape references the precariousness of the pebble towers and each is engraved with a wish.
