Stumbled upon this well written critique of the new Haunch Of Vension’s gallery space in London, and a review of the opening show; Mythologies. I wont’t dwell on the review as i’m certainly no art critic, (short synopsis; ‘cynical’ and ‘dumb’ Mr Searle’s words.) But what interested me was the idea of skeletal Loony Tunes caught in mid action. It’s a fascinating concept, obviously a bit dark but interesting to give these cartoon characters and their cartoon violence given a physical form.
A little bit of googling the name of the Artist – Hyung Koo Lee lead me to his website, which shows a very twisted but irreverent mind at work, and some fantastic images of the though processes and construction of these works of art. I’ve posted a few of my faves here but I would highly recommend taking a longer look at his work. It’s certainly one exhibition I’m going to see when it opens.
