http://johncurtingallery.curtin.edu.au Listen to Korean artist U-Ram Choe discuss his intriguing kinetic sculptures, on show at the John Curtin Gallery in February 2012. Translated into English by Rachel Parks.
In his first solo exhibition in Australia, U-Ram Choe presents his extraordinary artwork, charting a path between art, science and cybernetic technologies. Finely engineered stainless steel, aluminium, and acrylic 'bones' provide the skeletal scaffolding for the 'brains and muscles' - CPUs and motors - which are assembled into captivating forms reminiscent of otherworldly flora and fauna. Taking his vision and art into a virtual realm he frequently identifies and categorises his sculptures with a fabricated narrative of species and habitat, inviting the audience to imagine the evolution of life forms into the future.
