KIM Sanglan perpetuates the tradition and techniques, while giving to them a new application, from her installation in high scale with fishing net, thread of iron and transparent textile where she reorganizes the space and brings a poetic dimension unexpected and clear, from her work on paper like “White magic, black magic” rich in symbols and suggestivity, or from her superb works of scenography, for the special exhibitions, at the National Museum of Asian art–Guimet. Each time, Kim Sanglan testifies to a great creativity. She is an artist who has that sense of experimentation and shows it in each of her creations, and that in all the domains where she is involved, a sense of the genuine Korean aesthetic with an outstanding sense of innovation, guided each time by a taste very sure.
