“For me, the wonderful aspect of this series is the way Kwak literalizes her ideas, drawing on processes that are commonsensical, like folding paper or stitching or recycling of pieces of cloth (as in patchwork), all suggesting the mending of wounds….Each element, (the materials themselves or their manipulation) is thought of as a part of nature, as indeed, natural.”

Elisabeth Sussman, Curator                   
Whitney Museum of Art, New York

“One of the artist’s many strengths, which includes a rare, non-ironic sincerity, is her ability to shift from small to great, to make a stream or a river the equivalent of a starstudded galaxy, sparkling with light, reminding us that we are all stardust.”

Lilly Wei
New York-based critic, writer, and independent curator
