In June 2018, Suki Seokyeong Kang was awarded the 'Baloise Art Prize' at 《Art Basel》, alongside Lawrence Abu Hamdan: an annual award given to two emerging artists exhibited in the fair's Statements sector. Showing with One and J. Gallery, Kang presented an installation of abstract sculptures including 〈GRANDMOTHER TOWER?tow #18-02〉 composed of painted steel tubes forming three drum shapes with a triangle 'face', each perched on top of the other. 〈GRANDMOTHER TOWER?tow #18-02〉 stems from the ongoing series 〈Grandmother Tower〉. The first 〈Grandmother Tower〉 (2010) comprises a stack of discarded dish racks wrapped in thread to create enough friction to produce a curved, freestanding stack assembled to mimic Kang's grandmother's posture and height. These sculptures honour a woman who was born in the 1920s, and lived through colonisation and the Korean War.
