Surreal and hyper-realistic, these seemingly contradictory traits have become the signature aesthetic of Xooang Choi‘s sculptures. His approach of incorporating anatomically correct human features – which have all been crafted with excruciating attention to detail – onto his nightmarish creations make each sculpture that much more harrowing. From the head of a Great Dane sewn onto the neck of a life-sized man to a pair of wings formed by disembodied hands, the South Korean artist seems to know no bounds in deforming and contorting familiar human bodies and body parts into deeply disturbing works of art. But through invoking discomfort, Choi’s goal is to draw attention to important societal issues such as human rights, discrimination, and isolation.
