INHABIT is a bio structural installation woven by silk worms and developed through residencies at Silk Museum Macclesfield and The Comfrey Project.
Silk is the main medium in this work, it provides a crucial bridge between my UK and South Korean heritage through the use of silk in my practice drawing upon its rich tradition in both countries. INHABIT involves researching silk materialities through two residencies to make new work.
The Comfrey Project Residency will involve making a series of sculptures woven by 10,000 silk worms. This will develop an immersive installation inviting meditations on migration, home making, shelter and cultural identity.
My residency at Silk Museum, Macclesfield responds to the rich archive of the UK silk industry and focusses on the process of silk making.
NB: Silk worms will not be harmed in the making of work
