Event Description

NEW YORK — The Krause Gallery presents “Perfect Future”; Sangsik Hongs' unique
perspective on our future.
Sang Sik Hongs' work is all made by hand; a contrast to the technology we live in today.
Would the beauty and craft that embodies Hong's work be as fresh and perfect had a
machine made it? His emotions and personal desires go into making each piece. His
sculptures go beyond the limit of the materials; the images of lips may be interpreted as
symbols of desire. Connecting such symbolized images and symbolic meanings (power and
sex) reveals clearly that his interest is focused on human desires.
“Although every one desires power, only a few of people can have it. Power is the symbol of
strength and the object for one’s wish since it accompanies many interests. Power is strong,
scarce and heading toward eternity. However, the straw, contrary to the properties of power,
is a weak structure, easily available to anyone for it is produced on a large scale and a
disposable material.” His wit symbolizes semantic relationships and the structure of desires
connotes the pathos of reality.
