Tear Drop (2012)

 

I presented this work at the Korean palace Deoksugung in 2012. This work is made of reflective stainless steel and LED lights. On account of the concaved shape, the LED light is reflected on each mirror surface infinitely. It is my homage to Queen Inmok who was placed under house arrest in Seokeodang in the palace by the king, her step son.

 

눈물 (2012)

 

2012년 덕수궁에서 첫 선을 보인 이 작품은 거울과 흡사한 표면을 가진 스테인레스와 LED 전구로 제작되었다.  각이 진 오목한 형태로 인해,  LED 불빛은 작품을 구성하고 있는 스테인레스 조각들의 표면에 무한대로 반사된다. 이 작품은 왕이었던 의붓아들에게 덕수궁 석어당에 감금당한 인목대비를 위한 나의 헌정작이다.
