Materials and Process First

PRESENTED ON NOV 08, 2018
IN CHRISTCHURCH @ VOL 38

Steven Junil Park started his label '6x4' during his study at Elam School of Fine Arts as a response to the lack of everyday practicality he saw in art objects. He produces everything under the label himself: clothing, shoes, and accessories, with the conviction that materials and processes are more important than the intention of the maker. His pieces are one-offs and often feature handmade buttons, recycled and repurposed textiles, natural dyes, and hand-sewn finishing. He is intent on listening to the memory of materials and doing them justice by crafting them into long-lasting, practical items with integrity.
