About the Artist – Jin Eui Kim
AWARD Exhibitor, British Ceramics Biennial 2021
Jin Eui Kim’s work explores how the perception of three-dimensional ceramic forms can be manipulated by the applications of tonal bands or arrangements of blocks of clay. Illusory spatial phenomena can appear and thus significantly influence the actual three-dimensional forms. Jin Eui Kim works in-between the concepts of illusion and reality and his work attracts viewers by visual phenomena as well as physical confusions appearing on the surface. Restricting or removing data (information) on the surface increases the chance of the viewer’s perception shifting between illusion and reality. Looking with half closed eyes, in the darker light and with distance, brings the illusion to life for him.
