Grab Holder, 2023, 11 x 15 x 10 cm, Aluminum cast

The artist Kay Yoon questions how to define the functionality of body and space. The work Grab Holder (2023) was made as a part of her graduate installation  Free The Bone From The Flesh (2023), and Yoon’s Aluminum casts materialize her research, which she calls abstract concept into minimalistic visual forms. The Aluminum cast that clearly shows stretched- and gripped hand marks emphasizing the absence of the artist’s body.

Scratch, 2023, 47 x 13 cm, Aluminum cast

Double Grab, 30 cm, Stainless Steel

The artwork, (2023), originally is a part of the artist Kay Yoon's graduate installation, (2023). Yoon, through her graduate piece, delves into the exploration of the processes unfolding between dualistic states, employing organic materials such as meat and wine. These elements serve as the conceptual vehicle through which Yoon examines existential ideas related to the depiction of process.

<Double Grab> not only functions as a ready-made object but also operates as a tool for questioning the transformation of a commodity into the symbolic form of an artwork. The artwork invites contemplation on the functionality of commodities as they undergo a metamorphosis into a meaningful artistic expression.
