Gorilla by Kim In Tae

1170 Auahi Street


This striking sculpture that stands more than 6-feet-tall serves as the unofficial greeter to South Shore Market. Korean artist Kim In Tae assembled thousands of stainless steel butterflies to represent an illusion of shape, giving the impression that they could fly away at any moment. The shape of the full sculpture appears very clear and tangible, but its interpretation is tied to the thought of how fragile the image is, since it can disappear as the butterflies fly away.
