Hello, everyone! Get ready for Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s winter 2014 exhibition Wire and Light: An Exhibition of Sculptures by KeySook Geum! Starting on November 8, this solo show will be Korean artist KeySook Geum’s first exhibition in Shanghai, after her sculptures were shown at SH Contemporary in September.

Featuring a range of her life-sized fashion art sculpturesWire and Light is visual poetry of delicate ‘lace’ and flowing ‘fabric’ meticulously constructed from twisted wire and beads. Geum’s sculptures display a fusion of Asian and Western aesthetics, traditional and functional forms, and contemporary flair, displaying a sense of romanticism with fairytale-like glamor. There is a thoughtful eloquence to her work that entices viewers to step close, to linger, and to marvel at the wire and light.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the gallery for what promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience, and in the meantime, you can still enjoy Ye Hongxing's Fantasy Factory exhibition, which has been extended until November 4!
