    Minae Kim / Rooftoe, 2011, steel and wheel, 530 x 205 x 20 cm

Kim’s work explores and unearths invisible boundaries through the creation of structures which appear as if they support, or are in dialogue with, an architectural location. Feigning to maintain an in-between space, they reflect actual space by fitting into overlooked gaps, and then clearly articulate a [fake] function. Kim lives and works in London.
