In ArtAsiaPacific’s issue 106, editor at large HG Masters reflects on sculptor Chung Seoyoung’s practice, which dates back to the independent, experimental art scene of the 1990s and 2000s in South Korea. From a veiny, pointed ear made of latex foam stuck to the wall of a gallery, to a large, rough-hewn white-foam sculpture meant to emulate petals of a flower, Chung’s works mediate what she calls the “third form”—an unknown territory derived from collisions among objects and everyday encounters, infused with subtle social criticism.
