Seo Hae-Geun

(South Korea)

Born in 1974 in Uijeungbu and raised in Seoul, South Korea. Major recent works are fighter jets and war weapons. They are made of papers. And I created them thinking of the skins of things. Like a snake’s skin, the works imply another change and give us another fright. The planes and the weapons take their skins off on the floor of the exhibition hall, hide their substances under our surroundings, and try to transform themselves by using high scientific technology. The developed science and society make us smart and see the world through a small monitor, but it also makes us neglect the world without it. I hope my works give a chance to see the real. Human beings are dreaming the same dream and looking at each other’s form.
