Site is pleased to present Site 002. △, a three-person exhibition featuring sculpture, installation, animation, and in-progress pieces by Soeun Bae, Seoyoung Kim, and Soo Park. 

The artists first formed their artistic connection in 2021 in a basement studio in Seoul, Korea. They reconvene in Brooklyn, drawing from their first collective exhibition three years prior. They present a renewed sense of materiality, movement, time, system and language to form re-solidified framings through their passage in transition and growth. Exploring tangents of existence in their twenty-something creative bodies, the artists transform the white cube space of Studio 104 at Brooklyn Fire Proof under the umbrella of creative works in progress.

Birthed from a mind-map newsprint sheet in her studio (Return, Center, Growing from 2024), Soeun Bae’s works share discourse around supplementary, looping, emitting, and generating relations that happen within bodies. Parts of her installations for △ are recreations of her current studio space in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, transferring the way they live and mirroring the growing potential and ever-changing nature of practices. 

Seoyoung Kim brings anonymous modular structures that act as an invitation to alter and converse with the exhibiting room. Her structures present an experience of engagement, activating portals and disruptions that compel viewers to alter their pace, alongside the two other artists’ presentations at △.

Soo Park spans through digital and physical spaces with her presentation, challenging conventional perceptions of reflecting upon childhood innocence. The artist’s narratives on and off the screen transports viewers to a specific time and recenters one back into present times with nostalgia. Soo’s monstrous creatures join the viewers in the room, building playful connections.

From an understanding of the contradictions coming from their individual experiences, differences and extensions, the three artists assemble the momentum of their presence to celebrate their current musings, finding balance within themselves and with each other. Like the exhibition’s titular triangle, the artists recognize their connection and separateness in centering with one another's' practices.
