Existential Sculptures By Park Ki Pyung

Seoul-based artist and student, Park Ki Pyung, creates striking human sculptures that embody a universal and eternal question — namely the internal struggle with the self.

Created based on personal reflections regarding the past and the future, mortality, character and behavior, the artist creates sculptures from materials such as resin and steel, shaped in the form of figures that are incomplete or ruptured, appearing like a shell, “to describe condition of emptiness,” says Park. “I also use shape of human body with excluded front face, so that I can delete unique characteristics of each person. I describe images of ancient battle scene to show violence against self.” Follow Park’s practice here on Instagram.
