Caught My Eye: Kim Simonsoon



'Girl Baptised in Gold'
Ceramic 
2008




Kim Simonsoon is a young Finnish sculptor who lives in Helsinki. His life-sized ceramic sculptures of cute, big-eyed young girls and deer, draw inspiration from Japanese manga comics and questions the role of the child and nature in the modern world. I stumbled across this little girl in the ceramic section of the V&A.

“Authority in its’ many forms fascinates me and in my works I want to reverse the common beliefs by making the weak powerful.” (Kim Simonsson)
