\'Transcending Matter\' is a group exhibition curated around recent works by three Korean artists: Yoo Bong Sang, Seo Young-Deok and Lee Gil Rae.

These artists share the common, perplexingly intricate, usage of heavy metal within the creation of their artworks, the results of which defy the properties of the base element. Seo Young-Deok uses steel chain, Yoo Bong Sang uses nails and Lee Gil Rae\'s predilection is for wrought copper.

In contradiction however, are the ephemeral subjects that they each choose to evoke, which include a range of natural forms, from trees to the human body.
