Byeongdoo Moon - I Have Been Dreaming to be a Tree
Simply unbelievable. The sinewy muscle of the deer turned into steel wire, this sculpture by Korean artist Byeongdoo Moon is the epitome of grace. It speaks to a harmony in nature, a beauty of life, and the interconnectedness of all living things
Moon Byeong-doo is a Korean sculptor who has used stainless steel wire to express the coexistence of humans and nature in this small universe. He obtains a sense of unity by bending and soldering a lot of sharp and cold wires and made works that investigate the temperature of living things and metals, and the symbiosis between humans and nature.
His artwork begins with an image that anyone can understand, making it easier to feel and experience art. It allows you to wake up through your own visual experience in the everyday life you know.
Each sculpture is an object. And thus, each object has its own existence. However, the inspiration that is brought on by this object changes as it hovers and revolves around this object. For Byeong-doo, nature has a longer history than humans and existed even before mythology. Therefore it is a literary mirror that projects human existence. Ultimately, we are exploring the point where the designs of existing beings meet. What he can see in any object means that object can also see him.
