In Ho Song

My work expresses imaginary animals. First, I mould rough shapes of various animals using handbuilding 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; a witty human-shaped wooden figure, which is known for taking a role in sharing the happiness with the passed ones and relieving their sorrows, coming and going between this world and the next.

I reconstituted the Kkokdu with imaginary animals instead of human characters.
