Make no mistake, Korean artists Yun-Woo Choi makes eye-popping, jaw-dropping things – huge sculptures often made from newspaper and magazines painstakingly built into something ferociously intense and really beautiful. But this is a creative on a mission to make you think as well as marvel and there’s a richly-researched seam of theoretical physics behind his work, as well as Taoist and Buddhist philosophy. With a particular fascination with multiple dimensions, his work becomes even more intriguing as you realise that there’s a lot more going on here than initially meets the eye.
HIs choice of material is significant too, newspapers and magazines have a finite relevance that juxtaposes with the timeless questions he is interested in exploring. Wow on every level.
