Printstallation Invasion: Eunkang Koh

  • Location: FAC Main Gallery, 2nd Floor
  • Time: 8:00am - 4:30pm

Eunkang Koh’s Printstallation Invasion combines printmaking, soft sculpture and installation, focusing on social phenomena in our contemporary consumerist society. As lifestyle and thinking processes are ruled by money and capitalism, society’s goals are to become richer and wealthier so that we can consume even more. Consumption, driven by endless desires, triggers an identity crisis. Koh creates animal-human hybrids through which she expresses the absurdity of our world. Her ironic creatures portray a mixture of humor and grotesqueness, reflecting life in our consumerist society.
