Unique & Powerful Sculptures made from Hook-and-Loop Fasteners

Yong Joo Kim is now accepting wall-mounted commissions at varying scales

All commissioned artwork will be made by Yong Joo Kim using her pressure-and-weight-based fabrication method applied to hook-and-loop fasteners: her signature material for which she is uniquely known worldwide.

The social pressure and weight of responsibility we experience can sometimes take away the confidence and certainty we once felt in what we do, leaving us doubting whether our efforts are good enough.

I aspire to make art that reminds us in such times that our efforts do matter, that the work we’re doing is beautiful, that it  deserves to be recognized and appreciated.
