Rocks

Collected from streams, the natural stones and pebbles huddled together on the fine sandy beach conjure up the image of a work of land art from the past which unfolded in vast wilderness and coastal areas. KANGvisualizes the scientific hypothesis that all individual natural stones were originally a part of a large rock mass, which shattered into pieces over tens of thousands of years, and were scattered as pebbles in streams and as grains of sand by the seashore.His workis an organic expression of the shapes and forms of time and energy of pebbles accumulated in one boulder before they were fragmented, and sheds a new light on the roles of man-made actions and power of nature in art.
