Suspended charcoal installation examines relationship between architecture and objects

Korean artist Seon Ghi Bahk has created an installation that examines the relationship between natural materials and man-made objects by using piece of charcoal that is suspended on nylon threads, exhibited in Miami’s Zodak Gallery.

The charcoal fragments are presented in the shapes of shattered columns, orbs and other forms that are all aimed at exploring the connection between man and nature.

“Because these airy columns appear to be in various states of completion or decay, viewers are led to consider the impermanence of human civilization and the complex relationship of all things to nature,” said a spokesperson for the gallery.

“According to Seon Ghi Bahk, the idea that man and nature can exist separately is pure fiction. His work points out that humankind is not only derived from nature, but cannot exist without it.”

Fiction of the Fabricated Image will be exhibited at the Zodak Gallery until 25 August 2014.
