South Korean artist Lee Bul titled her architectural installation – shown at the Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) in London – Diluvium, a former name for glacial drift. Apparently alluding to icebergs floating imperceptibly across the ocean, Bul created a sculptural monochromatic composition barely distinguishable from its surroundings. She covered the walls in sheets of silver vinyl, reflective and dramatic, and zigzagged strips of the material – seemingly stretched by an invisible force – across corridors and rooms, perhaps to produce an alluring allegory of cataclysmic climate change, or is it the unravelling of a utopian dream? Diluvium is a variation on Bul’s original installation of the same name. Built out of timber and steel frames, it was presented at the KCC in 2012. This time, says curator Je Yun Moon, ‘her idea was to extend the planes and lines of the earlier work with vinyl tape, thus turning the entire exhibition space into a monster’.
