Meekyoung Shin

Gallery 7 was perhaps my favourite.

Meekyoung Shin’s Translation Vases series reproduces the forms and shapes of ancient Chinese pottery using unusual materials. She creates a silicon mould, pours melted soap into the mould and waits for the soap to harden. Once the soap has hardened into shape, the artist carves out the inside and inlays the exterior with coloured soap or draws patterns using natural dye. The final works are simultaneously kitschy, real while fake, solid yet unstable.” Saatchi Gallery Exhibition Guide.

Wow.
