Emotional State - Chang Hyun Bang Ceramics

Chang Hyun Bang: Blurriooo

Artist Statement:
The tiny swine in my work have human emotions. Depression, anxiety, desire, obsessions from my daily life, and subtle emotions indescribable through language are all conveyed to viewers through swine body language.

The space I dwell in is represented through abstract architectural structures. This is a floating space dependent on memories rather than an actual space our bodies exist in, or phenomenological space where we meet the world and new languages are produced. Rational thoughts no longer exist, only primordial emotions. Languages, produced within the interrelations between buildings and swine unveil the mechanisms of the customs, regulations, desires, and powers oppressing us.
The architectural structures do not exist independently and remain meaningful only in relation with the pigs. The contrasting scale between tiny swine and huge buildings, colors, and lines of architectural

structures and swine body language,

are critical elements expressing the

pigs’ psychological state.

Chang Hyun Bang, “The secret garden of Memory I”

fired clay, glaze, glass, 41x48x51 , 2013


Night is when these feelings most revitalize. My desires, covered by daytime consciousness, ancient wounds submerged in the unconscious, and unknown anxieties, reveal their entities in my night space.
