Moonlight Crown  (2019 - ongoing)

Crowns evolve into bodies, too large and heavy to be worn on the head. Yeesookyung questions the meaning of a lustrous “crown”, a symbol of absolute power. Strongly influenced by the beauty of Baekje-era gilt bronze incense burners, the artist would often study these relics and imagine the vitality and dynamism of the ancient Korean peninsula where there were various forms of cultural exchange along the Silk Road and the

Steppe Route. These moments are ingrained in the Moonlight Crown series.
