Sculptures by Xooang Choi

Born in 1975 in Korea, Xooang Choi obtained his MFA in Sculpture from the Seoul National University in 2005. Already during his studies, he became recognized for his tiny figurative sculptures made of painted polymer clay. However, since 2007 and his one-man show titled The Vegetative State, Choi’s figures have been enlarged in its scale, which gave more presence to his figurative sculptures that unearth dark emotions. The artist modifies proportions of the human-like characters or isolates body parts and takes them out of context to create disturbing and thought-provoking pieces that explore human rights, discrimination, society’s pathological state, isolation, loneliness, and sex and gender politics among other themes.
