‘Seed System’ promises to be a remarkable show as Ilhwa Kim will premiere a new collection of works that mark a shift in focus from macro to micro seed universes. Her new collection, called ‘Seed School’, revels in the particular uniqueness of each seed as a universe in itself. In ‘Seed School’, each seed is artfully laid bare, revealing the lines, circles and rolls from which it acquires its distinct qualities. The intricate symmetry of these new works and their geometric colour compositions have a sense of order that soothe even as they fascinate the mind. In this way, the micro and macro seed universes are similar though entirely unmistakable. – from the artist
