박찬용의 상황주의 조각

Situationalistic Sculptures of Park Chan Yong

“Cities of desire. Movies dealing with gangs of heartless cities and the realities of life in them are generally classified as noir films. Even taking into account the attributes of movies to exaggerate and dramatize, the images of gangs portrayed in those films are not very different from the images of modern ordinary men.”

– Choong Hwan Koh

본능적 투쟁 욕망의 알레고리

Allegory of Instinctive Fighting Desire

“His sculpture claims power, desire, sexuality and the falsehood of an entity maintaining and prevailing over the human society with sharp cynicism and in a faithful formative language. The value projected by such works lies in a reason that those artifacts become a source for discussions that thoroughly scrutinize the existence of humans.”

-Young-Ho Kim

투쟁, 그 영원함

Fight -its perpetuity

“12마리의 핏불이, 12개의 견고한 호전성이 하나같이 갇혀있고, 그 갇힘에 의해 투쟁의 의지마저 저당잡힌 역설적인 풍경으로 거기에 있는 모습을 보라. 입은 굳게 다물어져 있고, 적 대신 허공을 향한 듯한 타원형의 응시는 차라리 우수에 차 보인다.”

서커스, 짐승들의 느와르

Circus, The Noir of Beasts

“The artist wants the untamed wild nature to be recovered. The untamed should be respected because of their being untamed. Who will tame whom? Who will drive whom to fight? Who will make a laughing stock of whom? We may be all in an area without an exit or may be outside it. Where are you and I?”
