Choi Xooang

Born in 1975 - South Korea

BIOGRAPHY

Xooang Choi began to be recognized from the early 2000’s for his miniature figurative sculptures made of
painted polymer clay. Since 2007 his work has been enlarged in its scale, which gave more presence to his
sculpture - as if a living object staged in space.
Choi’s work is distinguished for its hyper-realistic technique of portraying human bodies and its powerful
metaphors contained therein. Figures and body parts in his work are distorted, exaggerated, abbreviated or
mutilated, participating in a certain action or composing a certain structure. The artist portrays facets of human
relations and contemporary psychology including society’s pathological state, gender politics, communication
(or its absence), and isolation, oppression or anxiety of an individual devastated in the homogenized, uniform
social structure. Remarkably delicate in detail yet also disturbing - even macabre, images of his work comprise
a metaphor expressed in human bodies, their gestures and looks –at once extremely realistic and surrealistic
– reflecting the artist’s acerbic observations and commentary on society. His sculptures that reveal mental
maladies of contemporary people - lost; deficient; paranoid; and deprived of free will-, and violence hidden
beneath the rationality of society expand to explore ontological questions about human existence and identity.
