Well, it took me a year and six months to find a translator! Many thanks to Insook Weber for providing the translation from Korean to English.
Interviewer : Areum Kim of Elle Girl KO.
” This artist specializes in art and food, in other words, art-food. She combines painting and sculpture, and most of all she likes making food out of cardboard.
Through her art, she recreates food and everything kitchen. Her cardboard work could be defined as eco-art, since all her materials are recyclable products transformed into something new. These cardboard treats are so beautiful!
She finds ideas for her subjects in supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants. She also finds inspiration in the cardboard boxes themselves. She says she finds the materials, and they tell her what to create.
I asked her what three things make her happy.
” That’s the easiest question in the world: art, cardboard and food”
And, what is her wildest dream:
“I would like to make a 4 course meal for 12, out of cardboard!”
