Beautiful Hand-Shredded Silk Flower Installation!

These installations created by artist Gyun Hur with transformative properties. To made this he is using countless pieces of silk flowers, Hur hand-shreds the delicate materials into a fine, almost powdery, substance and reallocates their decorative charm to a new form.


In her installation titled I Dreamed of Your Utopia, the artist does exactly this while simultaneously exploring the hidden narratives of people with grandeur goals and dreams.


With the help of her family, Hur constructs her arduous installation, one row at a time. The piece itself is a reflection of their labor and the satisfying product of the work that has gone into making it.


Almost like a performance piece, the installation echoes the artist’s own energy put into the work and presents the completed floor installation as her ultimate goal filled with memories gained through diligence and patience.
