This June, situated within Somerset House’s famous fountains, a large scale, futuristic sculpture will bring the sun down to earth in a heady alchemy of nature and technology.

Devised and designed by Seoul-based experimental art studio Kimchi and Chips (founded by Mimi Son and Elliot Woods), when the sun is shining Kimchi and Chips: Halo will form a circle of light suspended in the air above Somerset House’s courtyard, created by a calibrated array of over 100 mirrors.

This installation invites audiences to consider how the potential of one of the world’s most precious natural resources can be harnessed sustainably. Alongside the installation will be an Open Studio, located in the West Wing, revealing the inner workings and ideas of the ingenious public artwork with various opportunities to meet the team.

Halo is co - commissioned by Arts Council Korea and Arts Council England Joint Fund and 2017 Gwangju Design Biennale. Presented by Somerset House with the Korean Cultural Centre UK .
