First solo exhibition at Supply Seoul
Seoul, South Korea

WORD PLAY is the methodology that embodies KUO DUO’s process of exploring exuberant imagination of material construction. It symbolizes their way of making a series of works by combining the words of diverse construction methods with materials. For instance, what if ‘MIX’ and ‘WOOD’ combines? How will it be when we ‘WEAVE’ the ‘METAL’? What can we get when ‘FOLD’ the ‘PLASTIC’? It sometimes sounds ridiculous and nonsense but it arouses fresh imagination for a new approach.

KD’s solo show <WORD PLAY> is the first exhibition they introduce the concept and three results of ‘WORD PLAY’. It consists of MIX WOOD, PEEL WOOD, and FIRE WOOD, conducted through the act of ‘mixing, peeling, and firing’ the material ‘wood’, as the name of each work refers to. It is an experimental collection of furniture and objects that they have studied how one material, wood, interpreted into different archetypes through different methods.  All series are the result of hands-on experimentation and made in theur wood workshop.
