Virginia-based Korean artist Bohyun Yoon's suspended installation, Unity, takes fragmented pieces of dolls, hangs them in midair, and gives them suggestive shadow forms. It's a genius plan that has been executed perfectly. The body parts alone create a slightly disturbing environment, but the shadows transform the piece into something much more provocative and meaningful.
Of Unity, Yoon says, "I cut, I extend, I distort, I reconstruct, and I fragment the body to create a chaotic image of a human. By living in Korea, Japan and the U.S, I have first-hand experience in diverse social systems and have come to view my life experiences as raw material for my research. With my research in mind, my art utilizes the body as the tool for an intensive investigation of the public and private; examining the relationship between how people understand their body and how this understanding represents themselves in the greater context."
