Korean artist Hong Sungchul prints intimate images onto enormous sets of elastic strings on metal frames, and the result is a tactile mesh of vertical lines that create a 3D effect which recedes into the background of more and more strings. The images are also tactile in nature: there’s a desperate longing for the human touch across each piece, as hands and arms intertwine, or a lone human eye stares back at you.
One gallery aptly describes Sungchul’s work as being “ghostly”: there’s a unearthly quality to the pieces, which fade in and out depending your perspective of looking at each work at a different angle or depth.

It’s like a wee weasel
