South Korean artist, Seo Young Deok creates beautifully accurate sculptures out of a single material, bicycle chain. He welds each chain in what becomes a long and intense process lasting months. And while bicycle chains might be seen as a representation of the freedom a bicycle affords, Seo Young Deok’s sculptures seem heavy, damaged and oppressed.
His latest solo-exhibition, Dystopia, is currently travelling the world. View more of his pieces at youngdeok.com.
