Recomposition of Objects

Recomposition of Objects by DukHee Kim at GALERIE PICI

From June 26 to July 15, Galerie PICI presents “Recomposition of Objects,” an exhibition by ceramic artist DukHee Kim. This exhibition invites viewers to see beyond the practical purposes of objects, highlighting unexpected combinations of organic forms and textures. This exhibition is part of our ongoing program to introduce contemporary ceramic works to our gallery audience.

DukHee Kim gives everyday items special significance by incorporating gold. The vibrant reds and reflective golds contrast with the natural essence of clay, transforming it into something luxurious and opulent. By integrating gold elements into ordinary bowls, she imbues these items with a sense of importance and grandeur, elevating the mundane to the extraordinary.

Her ceramic works are not only visually captivating but also offer a tactile experience. The artist’s playful and whimsical elements shine through in the exaggerated forms and bulbous protrusions. These almost cartoon-like features add a sense of fun and lightheartedness, providing viewers with a unique joy and delight that is rarely found in traditional ceramics.

Ceramic artist DukHee Kim (b.1969, Seoul) studied ceramics at Ewha Womans University and its graduate school, Seoul. She furthered her studies in Japan as a research student at Tama Art University in 1999 and at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2000, where she completed her doctoral course in 2004. Since her first solo exhibition in Seoul in 1997, she has been actively working between Korea and Japan. “Recomposition of Objects” marks her first solo exhibition with Galerie PICI.
