Yi Hwan-Kwon’s fiber-reinforced plastic sculptures are vertically distorted depictions of idols from everyday life and film. Through the compression of familiar images, Yi delves into themes of representation and subjective perception, and the variability of matter through manipulation of time and space. Distance Beyond Our Common Sense, a fully illustrated hardcover catalogue, includes an artist statement and essay by art historian Cho Soon-Jin.
