The original sculptures of this Korean artist go beyond the limits of the material; the images of the lips can be interpreted as symbols of desire. Relating such symbolic images to symbolic meanings like power and gender clearly shows that the sculptor’s interest is focused on human desires.
“Although everyone desires power, only a few can get it. Power is the symbol of strength and the object of everyone’s wish since it accompanies many interests. Power is strong, scarce, and leads to eternity. However, straw, unlike the properties of power, is a fragile structure accessible to all since it is produced on a large scale and disposable. ”
His mind symbolizes the semantics of relationships and the structure of desires connotes the suffering of reality.
