The disturbing sculptures of Choi Xooang
by Diogo Neto 2:12 PM 13 comments
All at once delicate and nightmarish these painted polymer clay figures by Seoul-based artistChoi Xooang are nothing short of remarkable. Try as I might it’s hard to
find a definitive, trustworthy article to source information from, and even the spelling of his name seems to change from site to site. However it seems generally accepted that Xooang is attempting to draw attention to human rights abuses in Korea, and seeing these somewhat macabre, stunted figures unable to see or speak, it’s hard to dispute that. You can see much more of his work at Mu Um and Slash, though be warned it’s somewhat graphic (generally nudity)
