About

Untitled Steel Mesh I 2012, Jin-Sook So, steel mesh, painted, electroplated silver and gold leaf, 31.5" x 52.75" x 6.25", 2012. This abstract geometric wall sculpture was done by fiber artist, Jin-Sook So (b. 1950, Korea). Unwilling to create work with anything not found in her studio, Jin-Sook So also to repurposing when the pandemic hit. She turned to steel mesh left over from 30 years of projects developing a bojagi-like cloth using stored bits of mesh. The process transformed the difficult time of the pandemic, enabling her to find “stability and happiness” as she folded, sewed and colored Red Untitled with the colors of a Korean fall. So grew up in Seoul, Korea where she received a master's degree in textile art, after which she continued her studies in Japan. She went to Sweden in 1978 to be a special student in the Department of Textiles at Konstfack, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and has lived there since. So’s work is informed by her time spent in Korea, Sweden and Japan. She uses transparent steel mesh cloth, which she burns, paints, electroplates in gold or silver, sews and shapes to create sculptural and wall pieces. The past and present are referenced in So’s work in ways that are strikingly modern and original. She has used old Korean schoolbook pages to create collage and steel mesh to create contemporary pojagi and to re-envision common objects — chairs, boxes and bowls.
