Kim’s Ceramic Donuts Featured in “Colossal”

Pop-art inspired ceramic donuts created by Academy graduate Jae Yong Kim (Ceramics ’01) are featured in Colossal. Kim chooses patterns and images that evoke a sense of pop culture both past and present, with several pieces imitating the style of famous painters such as the splattered marks of Jackson Pollack or concentric dots of Yayoi Kusama. These references, alongside their presentation as food, ask the audience to consider what they are really consuming when viewing his small, spherical works.
