"Root" by Clara Kim


Clara Kim designed and crafted "Root" with an awareness of space. Drawing inspiration from the roots of plants, she built a chair that embodied personal space. When unoccupied, the chair itself claims space; however, when sitting in it, the chair’s claimed space becomes your own. Clara Kim is a Korean-American sculptor based in Chicago. Her sculptural investigations into household objects consider personal space in relationship to our possessions. Because of this, Kim believes that viewer interaction crucial to understanding her work. By getting involved with her objects, the participant becomes part of the space of the work. Kim received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Sculpture.
