Works > Defleshed (2023)
Beacon Art Munich
Kay Yoon questions how to define the functionality of body and space. Yoon’s bronze casts materialize her research, which she calls abstract concepts into minimalistic visual forms. Her work Defleshed consists of two pieces. Like in photography theory where any photographic image only indicates all the absent images in the world, the bronze casts that clearly show stretched- and gripped hand marks emphasize the absence of the artist’s body. The bone-like works allude to the missing flesh as if the human body is evidence of the social structures it tries to overcome. By listening to our body knowledge, which is as timeless as the patina of Defleshed suggests, we can constitute new ways of evolution beyond human cognition.
