Born out of a fascination with the human body and its form, Korean artist Seo Young Deok creates human figures out of a very unusual material: chains. His male and female figures are meticulously created out of upcycled conventional chain and bicycle chain, welded together to stiffen its joints into a shell that reveals surprisingly detailed figures. Appropriate to the somber mood of the pieces, the series is called ‘Dystopia’ and recently ran as a solo exhibition at the INSA/Arko Art Center.

Having played with chains growing up I know the tortures of taking them apart and putting them back together. One can only imagine the difficulties the artist endured. The pieces of chain link were welded together to form the sculpture. The final sculptures were shown at Seo Young’s exhibition Dystopia which took place at the INSA/Arko Art Centre in Seoul in 2011.
