Nam

 

Hijo Nam's artwork is an orchestra comprised of many instrumental sounds-each material having its own unique echo contributing to the whole creation. The scraps she works with were used long ago; there is still evidence of their incredible age. These scraps could have once been a part of a garage ceiling or even a doorway. The possibilities are endless. Nam's role is to understand the historical imprints left on these pieces and to modernize them into sculptures from her own perspective. She had gone as far as to completely break apart her ceramic sculptures, and then fuse the broken pieces with all the other materials, to create a symphony of sound, like a conductor that unifies an orchestra.
