Minjae Kim: I Was Evening All Afternoon
Publication produced on the occasion of the first solo exhibition of works by New York-based, Seoul-born designer and furniture-maker Minjae Kim.
In 2019, Kim began making works from his home studio that would come to define and establish his burgeoning solo practice, and has since developed a unique visual and material language that skillfully and unexpectedly incorporates hand-carved wood, fiberglass, and lacquer across seating, lighting, case pieces, and a menagerie of objets.
The works in I Was Evening ... deftly reference and mimic several traditional typologies of Western furniture that have always fascinated Minjae in their specificity and idiosyncrasy.
Includes an introductory essay by Su Wu
Photographs by Kimari Hazward and Erik Benjamins
