Sui Park works involve creating 3-dimensional organic forms mostly in generic and biomorphic shapes. Generally, the material used to create such contemporary sculptures is plastic, usually an underestimated material.
Amoeba. Fish. Sea anemone. Aliens. These are all fair interpretations of the Korean artist sculptures and installations made from interlocked cable ties. Weaving together the plastic fasteners she creates undulating organic surfaces or swarms of creatures that swim in schools and cluster together like eggs.
My work involves creating 3-dimensional organic forms mostly in generic and biomorphic shapes. Through these forms, I attempt to express seemingly static yet dynamic characteristics of our evolving lives. While they resemble transitions and transformations of nature, the forms are also to capture subtle but continuous changes in our emotions, sentiments, memories, and expectations.
She weaves and connects traces and tracks of the subtle changes in organic forms. The organic forms are made with mass-produced industrial materials, in particular, Monofilament and Cable Ties. They are non –durable, disposable, trivial, inexpensive and easily consumed materials. But, when she weaves and connects them, they are transformed into organic visualizations. “I want them to be creating lasting moments, evoking and encapsulating our precious thoughts,” says Sui.
She often finds these moments from nature. She thinks nature allows us to pause and find things that have been overlooked and are inspiring. “Nature provides me with rooms to find breakthroughs and answers and gives me time to ponder thoughts. Through my work, I want to bring to our attention the moments that nature allows us to find and look back. I present nature in abstract porous ways so that they can be filled with our moments.”
