Meekyoung Shin | National Centre for Crafts and Design
- 22 July — 2 November 2014
The Korean artist Meekyoung Shin’s soap sculptures are open at the National Centre for Craft and Design.
From a distance they may look like glass or ceramic, but get closer and the smell of Shin’s soap sculptures give themselves away. Earlier this year the National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) was home to one of the artist’s Toilet Project pieces which saw soap busts placed in public WCs around the country. Now the NCCD welcomes more of Shin’s work for Cabinet of Curiosities including a film of the making process and the opportunity for members of the public to handle a piece.
Cabinet of Curiosities is at The National Centre for Craft & Design until 2 November.
