Chun Kwang Young


Korean sculpture Chun Kwang Young instills an out of this world set. Kwang creates his sculptures with small wedged foam, wrapped with mulberry paper, presenting itself as a Meteoric installation.



“”Chun’s preference for using natural dyes and handmade mulberry paper was born from childhood memories of his uncle’s pharmacy, where small medicinal herb parcels that were similarly wrapped with paper and hung in tight clusters from the ceiling in order to protect them from insects. […] “I love nature and I want to live my life in harmony with nature,” he said. “Our ancestors lived modestly and simply, and thought all lives should be respected. “I hope my work can take this traditional Korean message forward to modern society.”” -Via New York Times
