”one of the most dangerous creatures of our time”

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


One of the Most Dangerous Creatures of Our Time, was an installation that referred in its form to the Antique Greek Laocoon Group. However, instead of marble, I used oil drums, and the strangling snakes of the Antique sculpture are replaced by oil pipes. I suggested a sculpture which would be finished through collaborative authorship. The artwork invited Ulsan’s residents and visitors to engrave their thoughts or leave a graphic sign on the sculpture, using black permanent markers. The questions were: “What do you fear most, and what do you wish most for your future?” We invited the citizens of Ulsan, and the visitors to the city to add their thoughts. In doing so, we committed ourselves to creating the future. One day, the sculpture will have disappeared from the Taehwa River, and the site of the sculpture will be empty, but our collective thoughts remain. The sculpture is now covered with signatures and images that changed its colour from white to black. After the festival, my sculpture was acquired by Ulsan University to be a permanent installation on the campus.
