Byongseo Yoo (South Korea)

Byungseo Yoo's practice suggests different perspectives and readings of a particular historical frame, or incident within the context of contemporary art. Yoo considers the historical framework as the subject matter of his work, in which he verifies and cross-references it`s surrounding discourses and theories. Yoo brings his own narratives, and highlights the hidden dimensions beyond what has been realized in its primary context. Yoo often works with two opposing ideas. The comparisons ranges from eroticism and grotesque, purity and eternity, and sensual and innocent. His work then takes a form of theatrical direction, painterly procession and sculptural construction.
