Hong Seon Jang – Type City

Posted by Fabio 15 May 2012

Hong Seon Jang create works that evoke a fundamental recognition of our space and environment and imply physical vulnerability in our daily life. These ideas evolved from his interest in studying the similarities between human and non-human life forms pertaining to structures, symbols, and patterns. The main concept is a fascination with the comparison of human activity and natural phenomena as it corresponds to the circulation of destruction and creation. His work consists of installations often made out of found objects and common products. In giving these everyday materials new meanings and aesthetic possibilities, He strive to actively practice the concepts of the Eastern philosophies of the circulatory life system and the continuous flow of connections.
