Xooang Choi’s sculptures are way more than just art…they are visual portals that have the power to make you question your place in the world! His grotesque works are created out of resin but have a very haunting, human-but-not-human quality to them. His works feature severed limbs, skin corsets, and people made into backpacks. He makes childlike adult characters and deformed mature babies. His skill level is unreal, but it’s the feelings that his pieces evoke that are truly amazing.
His existentialist creatures, in the torments of their flesh and their contradictions, become our double dumb and clueless. The artist says that emotions are the only things given to a man or woman apart from their social status in the functioning of a capitalist society. Choi Xooang not only gives us his own feelings but attempts to retrieve a collective soul, a chart of all the sufferings and joys experienced by everyone.– Galerie Albert Benamou – Veronique Maxe
