Meekyoung Shin’s Cabinet of Curiosities

The Korean artist’s soap sculptures open at the National Centre for Craft and Design 

From a distance they may look like glass or ceramic, but get closer and the smell of Shin’s soap sculptures give themselves away. Earlier this year the National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) was home to one of the artist’s Toilet Project pieces which saw soap busts placed in public WCs around the country. Now the NCCD welcomes more of Shin’s work for Cabinet of Curiosities including a film of the making process and the opportunity for members of the public to handle a piece.

Written in Soap - A Plinth Project, Cavendish Square, London, Meekyoung Shin

Cabinet of Curiosities is at The National Centre for Craft & Design until 2 November
