In Between Presence and Absenc
e, 2

paper, book cloth

7½ x 12 x 2 closed; 7½ x 26 x 2 open

edition of 10

© 2010


I have cut out pages in the shape of a bowl to create absence and presence. The repetitive working process presented in the accumulated pages represents the timeless space in between the absence and presence as well as visualized-invisible concept of the relation of the presence and absence. I say, in this sculptural book, that the presence only exists when the absence is recognized.

Hand cut, screen print, coptic binding, clamshell box with two sides opening.

Sun Young Kang is a book and installation artist. From small intimate books to room size installations, she uses paper to create physical and conceptual space. She has presented her work in numerous special collections in libraries, and galleries and museums both nationally and internationally.
