in combinazioni nuove che siano utili, forse.
Il lavoro di questo scultore coreano ha dell’incredibile. Oltre a lavorare su forma e contenuto, Osang lavora con la fotografia per rendere il modello più fedele possibile alla realtà. Una realtà non certo oggettiva, ma che lascia spazio a interpretazioni e visioni.
Gwon Osang makes extraordinary life-size sculptures of people. He uses hundreds of photographic images to build up the surface appearance of his models, including the face, their hair and their clothes. Gwon’s skills as sculptor and photographer combine to make beautifully crafted figures with both photo-realist and surreal qualities.

Gwon’s models are often depicted in unusual poses. He is interested in exploring how the human figure can express different meanings in different contexts, through their gestures and expressions. His work is also heavily influenced by contemporary advertisements, and a fascination with the way they reflect modern-day life.
Gwon Osang is based in Korea and represented by Arario Gallery, Korea. He has previously exhibited work in China, Denmark, France, Italy, Japan and The Netherlands. Deodorant Type: Sculptures by Gwon Osang is his first major UK exhibition. This exhibition will also be accompanied by a new publication.
