Invites: Shinuk Suh

Shinuk Suh,Zabludowicz Collection

Zabludowicz Collection presents an Invites exhibition by London-based Korean artist Shinuk Suh. Working across kinetic technologies, textile and steel industrial structures, Suh has transformed the galley into a factory.

The installation portrays a production setting in which a narrative unfolds across a series of sculptural works. Combining satire and manufacture, Suh deconstructs the interconnectedness of human and machine. Through exquisite assembly and the reappropriation of industrial motors, the artist’s highly realistic factory is riddled with awkward incompetence as bodiless figures slide and flop across it.

For Suh, the figure is a factory-produced object, with the factory acting as a metaphor for today’s societal structures. The machines make the character behave and act in a certain way, as a critique of the oppressive nature of contemporary social institutions. Together, the works employ story, humour and the absurd to navigate the comedic tragedy of modern life.
