The Great Mimicry – Les animaux humanisés de Kim Byungkwan

L’artiste coréen Kim Byungkwan a réalisé une série de portraits d’animaux humanisés intitulée The Great Mimicry.

Des peintures acryliques dans lesquelles chien en costume et singe napoléonien semblent à la fois étranges et familiers, dans la droite ligne de son objectif artistique.

What I would like to express through my work is very simple.
I am trying to bring out strangeness from familiarity (visual habit).
Everything there is out there in this world, more or less, provides familiar vision.
This familiar vision can be replaced as habit. This habitual vision which every object gives us and creates comfort. However it shuts down all the other possibilities.
The habitual vision or visual habit makes us go by the routine ways. It stops us from having adventure and checking out the wonders out there.
My work is trying to destroy, tear up, and reconstruct this habitual vision so that our vision can be expended to other images.
I have strong faith in my work that my personal behaviour may lead us
“Strangeness within habitual vision off from the track. »
