The Death of a Robot.

Choi Jeong-Hwa (born 1961)  is a Seoul-based artist who
uses a wide spectrum of media in his work, including video
monitors, plastic molded animals, real and fake food, lights,
and wires…

Dangerous relationship (touch me)  Relação perigosa (toque-me)
Born in Seoul in 1961, he uses a wide range of mediums, including video screens, modeled plastic animals, real and fake food, lights and wires. Inspired by chaotic and teeming, local open-air markets, his work observes the attempts made by museums to preserve art in a world that is constantly changing and decaying…
Growing up in Korea in the sixties, a time of rapid economic growth and the start of mass production of disposable consumer goods, certainly left its stamp in Choi’s work. The exhibition, entitled “Truth”, embraces and, at the same time, ridicules the combination of consumerism and pop culture. He puts cheap, mundane goods on the same pedestal that is usually reserved for art in an effort to “restore the relationship between art and everyday life,” because, as he puts it, “everyday life … is the stage and battlefield of today’s art.”
