The Sculptures of Young-Deok Seo

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Often appearing fragmented or disproportionate, South Korean artist Young-Deok Seo’s sculptures featuring the human form are created entirely from welding metal chains together, link by link. Posed in moments of psychological distress evidenced by the open cavities and missing limbs or heads, the works explore the experience of man in tandem to an industrial based society. Skinned with materials that are often forged and used expressly to chain and lock objects, the artist suggests a slavery to these materials which in turn, has become engrained in our modern identity.
