Bridging the gap between craft and conceptual art, Meekyoung Shin's exquisitely crafted work is equally popular with critics and the public. She chooses to work in soap, an inexpensive material which does not last and eroded easily, illustrating the ravages of time.
Shin's interpretations of classical sculpture and porcelain from
16th century have raised fascinating questions about value and permanence. She also considers translation, what it means to
move yourself or an object from one location or culture to another, applying this to objects that have been relocated from one culture to another and become part of a museum collection.
This solo exhibition will include exciting collections of Shin's work, alongside film footage of her making process. Visitors will also
be able to handle some of Shin's work to help understanding and encourage visitors to engage with her meticulous craftsmanship.
An exciting learning and events programme will complement this exhibition. Full details will be announced closer to the time on our website and social media.

Curated by guest artists and designer-makers, this space weaves its way up the staircase and landings of the NCCD building and uses its location to make subtle reference to the collection being ‘a window onto the work and life of an artist, designer or craftsperson.
