Kang’s sculp­ture re­lates back to pre­vi­ous events and sit­u­a­tions. His work in which the flow of en­ergy and in­for­ma­tion comes in and out demon­strates a liv­ing sys­tem con­dens­ing all tem­po­ral­ity of gen­er­a­tion, growth, and ex­tinc­tion in one space. His sculp­ture fea­tur­ing an an­i­mal’s body­line ap­pears sta­ble in struc­ture, but shows some dis­con­tin­u­ous parts sig­ni­fy­ing a rapid change which de­rives an­other form and mod­i­fi­ca­tion. In Kang’s work, this en­ergy, ly­ing in the dy­nam­ics of a greater sys­tem is spec­i­fied as the phe­nom­e­non of the wind.

His works re­con­structed into enor­mous forms com­bin­ing thin metal wire are ag­gre­ga­tions of his con­scious­ness com­plet­ing an aes­thetic sense. They mainly con­cern an­i­mals, but un­doubt­edly re­flect his per­cep­tion of an ex­ter­nal world, his in­ner emo­tion in­hab­it­ing the world, and his in­di­vid­ual idea and life pro­jected into in­side a metal­lic struc­ture, such re­flec­tions give rise to a struc­ture be­tween medium and space, dis­play­ing es­tab­lished re­al­ity and ab­stract­ness si­mul­ta­ne­ously as sculp­tural pieces that come into be­ing through long, care­ful la­bor and cal­cu­la­tion. In this ex­hi­bi­tion his sculp­ture had a struc­ture in which a sense of weight de­riv­ing the mass of metal and lines main­tain­ing form ex­tended to space.
