Surin Kim's Alien-Like Sculptures Take Over REALATION SPACE Gallery in Seoul

An inside look at her debut solo exhibition, “POWER OBJ.”

South Korean artist Surin Kim has made her mark in the art world with her debut solo exhibition, “POWER OBJ.” Hosted at Seoul’s REALATION SPACE, the showcase includes Kim’s latest creations in various media forms.

Kim’s artistic vision revolves around bringing sculptures to life from her imagination, each with its own unique characteristics that she seeks to highlight and acknowledge. While physical sculptures are transient, the Seoul-based artist employs digital mediums to preserve and reproduce them online. Her art explores the interplay of contradictions and captures the profound emotions conveyed by sculptures in their pursuit of beauty.

The “POWER OBJ” exhibition features over 20 sculptures created using advanced 3D printing and UV printing technology. Kim’s signature dynamic forms draw inspiration from the Seokgatap and Dabotap stone pagodas found in Korea. The artworks range in size, including several striking large-scale pieces that exemplify the artist’s experimental approach. Kim’s commitment to sustainability is evident as recycled plastic materials are incorporated into the artworks.

Surin Kim’s “POWER OBJ” exhibition will be on display at REALIZATION SPACE until July 31.
