Stumbled over this amazing sculptor this morning. The Korean artist uses mostly clay, which he shapes to form (which is believed) human forms representing human rights abuse in Korea. Most of these “deformed” looking sculptures are unable to hear or speak and are often missing different body parts. Upon looking at these, I felt like these sculptures wanted to tell me something but were prohibited to. There’s a beautiful tension in his work, which allows you to sit there and ponder for a few minutes, “what’s really going on?” My art teachers have always told me the most successful work is the work you look the longest at. This made me question the message for minutes I had to post about it. Successful under my book.
