About

The Korean Cultural Centre UK is pleased to present Unfixed, an exhibition by the London-based Korean artist Meekyoung Shin. The exhibition continues her exploration into ‘translation', a slippage or a rift that occurs in the process of replication and dis- or re-location between different cultural and historical contexts. Made from soap, her works are replica of artefacts and canonical works of art, from Asian porcelain vases to Greek and Roman sculptures. The discrepancy between the extraordinary craftsmanship and the ubiquity and transience of its material brings into question the notion of authenticity, high art and cross-cultural translation. The exhibition includes Translation — Vases Series, decorative Chinese porcelain of soap, followed by Translation - Ghost Series, translucent vessels that stripped down to its essential form. Toilet project is a result of the collaboration with galleries and museums across the UK, each worn by visitors' hands. A real-time video installation of her large scale international public art project, Written in Soap: A Plinth Project is on display.
