Sungfeel Yun Showcase at Sketch

At LKL we’ve been noticing the emergence of Yun Sung-feel for the past few years, and it’s always encouraging to see the reputation and career of a young artist grow. We enjoyed his MA show at the Slade last year, his entry into the artist of the year show at Broomhill Sculpture Park, and his recent group show at Hanmi gallery, but we’ve been following him for longer than that. So it’s nice that he not only is participating in a group show later this month at a new private member’s club in Fulham, but also his work is being featured in an upscale Mayfair eatery / arts venue. Open seven days a week, but check the Sketch website for details.

Encounter Fine Art is delighted to announce a showcase exhibition of the critically acclaimed Korean artist Sungfeel Yun at Sketch, Mayfair. The exhibition marks the engaging meeting of an internationally renowned contemporary venue with an equally inspiring practitioner. Sungfeel Yun’s installation series, Looking at the Real World from Within the Real World, signifies a complex meditation on the cosmos, the rhythms of the universe and our relation to them.

My work is about the nature of existence, as explored and explained by Eastern philosophies and the theories of universal physics. The vast expanse of the solar system and the micro world of atoms have something in common; both worlds rotate around the same axis.’ – Sungfeel Yun

Sungfeel Yun utilises the intense power of simplicity to convey monumental concepts. His magnet powered, sensor activated, steel installations paradoxically invite the participation of the viewer, yet resist explanation. With a toss of steel filings the sculptures vivid surface is activated. This enigmatic fusion of minimalist sensibility and automatist motion creates unique works of great potency.

Sungfeel Yung’s work has received extensive recognition internationally, including multiple solo shows and a prestigious award from the Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art. Complimenting Encounter Fine Art’s exhibition Sungfeel Yun’s work will be featured in a series of Art14 lectures hosted by Sketch throughout February and March.
