“Jukhee Kwon’s work is the accumulative result of a destructive and repetitive process; the individual book, through the artist’s reworking, becomes something monumental, often returning to its original form- from tree to book, from book to tree. In Being, La Scatola Gallery will house a new work by Kwon taking the form of a suspended and overflowing bookcase.” Five – or was it six – single books are suspended high up on the pillars around the gallery – you can just about see one in the first photo.
