Osang Gwon Biography

After his 1998 photography-sculpture Deodorant Type series, Gwon Osang took a major step forward in the concept of photography and sculpture with The Flat series in 2003. Gwon's earlier works, Deodorant Type series, employed the process of taking over 1000 photographs were selected to create a sculpture. However, the artist's recent works take this process a step further by borrowing and transforming internet images that have been taken by others rather than himself. The Flat series features cut-outs of images that appear most frequently in advertisements, such ad watches, jewelry and make-up. The pieces of cut-out paper are fixed with simple wire structure, each becoming an individual sculpture. Then the installation is photographed into a flat surface, becoming both photograph and sculpture.
