adapting both cultural and culinary influences, auckland-based artist seung yul oh sculpts a series of traditional korean dishes from silicone and resin. lengths of varying strands and types of noodles — hanging 12 feet from the surface of the floor — stretch from space, dangling down into pots and bowls filled with modeled vegetables and broth. hyper-realistically crafted egg yolks, carrots, seafood, and meats seemingly extrude from the faux-liquid, materializing as actual ingredients drifting in the dish. a pair of chopsticks float at the sculpture’s crown, creating a surrealistic illusion that the elongated fine fibers are weightlessly hanging in mid-air.
