Seungmo Park, ‘Maya 1141’, 2016, Outset: Benefit Auction 2017

This piece is unique

From the Catalogue:
Seungmo Park uses layers of wired mesh to create sculptures that, seen from the distance, show the image of forests or human figures. A closer look will make the representation dissolve. These dynamics in perception reflect the artist’s conviction that there is no essence to be captured. The title of his series MAYA implies that “in truth, there is nothing” or just an illusion. Other works show life-size human figures with skin made of thin aluminium wire, creating a pattern of waving, parallel lines that reflect the light, again alluding to the emptiness underneath the surface of the ego.
