In Ho Song

My work expresses imaginary animals. First, I mould rough shapes of various animals using hand-building techniques. And then, I draw imaginary animals on them, just like drawing on a canvas. This work’s motif is a Korean traditional funerary figure, Kkokdu. Kkokdu is a witty human-shaped wooden figure, which is known as to take a role in sharing the happiness with the passed ones and relieving their sorrows, coming and going between this world and the next world. I reconstituted the Kkokdu with imaginary animals instead of human characters, and intended to satirize on humans’ greed and express other creatures’ dignity.
