“Islets of Aspergers”

Sculptures by North Korean artist-Xooang Choi, who exmplores a “state of impairment in social interactions”.

Choi visualizes the properties of each individual through one spreading rumor, one who has a huge head too heavy to stand up, one who begs for money with huge hands, one who has an extraordinary sense of smell, and one who has huge feet. In this series, Choi employs a partly hyper-realistic technique as well as other methods of exaggeration, abbreviation, and modification, using his own formative language.”  (Ki Hye-kyung, Curator of National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea)
