For the Love of Korea
Italian sculptor Aron Demetz teamed up with Korean sculptor Shan Hur. Together they created a fascinating piece of work called ‘The Tainted’. Demetz explores the human figure with his wooden sculptures and shows incredible skills in carving wood. He uses the material to highlight the harmony as well as the conflicts between man and nature. We are especially intrigued by the contrast between the smoothly carved figures and the harshly treated surfaces.
do ho suh’s sculptures are architectural environments, beautifully and meticulously crafted. whether addressing the dynamic of personal space versus public space, or exploring the fine line between strength in numbers and homogeneity, he constructs site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity.
North Korea Chilbo sea woman. She was married 2 years ago, but her husband studies in Pyongyang, far away from her village. She lives with her father and mother. The father is the chief of the village. Let’s say that is the elite of the countryside: they have 4 rooms in their house, and 4 Televisions! But at 5 in the morning, I saw her going out in the cold to put some fire in the heating system of the house. ∞Posted on January 14, 2011 Source: Flickr / mytripsmypics Tags: Eric Laffourge,Chilbo Sea,North Korea
