Dystopia by Seo Young Deok

Anna Kidman - Friday, December 09, 2011


Seo Young Deok, a Korean artist, has his impressive current exhibition 'Dystopia' on display at the INSA/Arko Art Centre. His sculptures are made from thousands of metres of chain (including bicycle chains), in which he tries to capture the anguish of his subjects. Some of the pieces appear to be decaying, slowing losing their form as time whittles away, whilst others remain imposing in perfect stature.
