Extinguisher, 2009

Like in the stories of Icarus and the Tower of Babel, I am persistently trying to transcend the boundaries of the system I live in. In my work, the physical limitations of human’s sensorial perception or gravity stand as a metaphors for the impossibility of such endeavours. The perpetually failed attempts, through their very repetitive pattern, gradually numb frustration and eventually dissolve into daily life. Human nature is irresistible.

More Hyunmin Ryu coming soon.
