“from quantum to cosmic, perhaps human consciousness is both simply and profoundly a portal through which such fractal connectivity flows. Perhaps the linkages that so effect our growth and integration at the biopsychosocial scales extend much deeper into the roots of matter, and much farther into the cosmos than modernist science has ever imagined… that everything in life is connected and that all of the universe is alive within these connections.”

Esther Kim is a Canadian born Korean artist who explores her obsession about the human body through the materialization of her work. Her current artistic practice involves metal fabrication, foundry, ceramics, and mould making to create an ambiguity in a tangible form, evoked through the contrast in medium and scale. Inspired by thoughtful investigation of philosophies of the mind and its relation to the body, the work is presented to the viewer to challenge commonly held assumptions about the world and to open possibilities for interpretations which instigate both cognitive and bodily awareness to the viewer’s subjective self. The artist invites viewers to freely create associations for themselves through their own bodily experiences.
