Suki Seokyeong Kang: Willow Drum Oriole
1_버들북꾀꼬리.png

Willow Drum Oriole refers to the sages of yore who would read the movements and sounds of the oriole flying in and out of the leaves of willow trees, as if weaving a thread into the fabric of the landscape. Using this metaphor, the artist symbolically reveals a defining characteristic of her work: sen­sitivity to audiovisual and tactile awareness, combined with spatiotempo­ral experience.
