When you walk underneath Chang-Hwan Kim’s hollow sculptures suspended in the air, it is as if you have entered the underwater tunnel in an aquarium. Kim is able to create the illusion that his works are weightless by manipulating stainless steel and creating movement within the frames.
Kim’s works suggest human desire by presenting images of animals. However, their frames of shiny metal seem free, light, and agile, reflecting the spiritual nature of desire and its detachment from physical fetters. It is as if our desires, along with the swimming creatures, are finally able to leap freely into an unlimited expanse of possibilities.
Walk into the bright and spacious lobby of the Fubon Financial Center and admire the sleek interior design. Sunlight falls through the windows during the day, and the city lights blink through at night; such interaction between light, shadow, and silhouettes makes the architecture all the more personal. Since 1997, Fubon Financial Center has lent its walls, corridors, and stairways as galleries, cleverly combining people and arts in this business space.
