Read the interview with Chang Hyun Bang, New artist - June-July 2011

→ Chang Hyun Bang is an exhibiting artist at the first edition of Ceramics Now Exhibition, held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Born in Korea, Bang Chang-Hyun studied ceramics and English language and literature at Kyung Hee University in Seoul and continued his studies (a master’s in ceramics) at the State University of New York, New Paltz. Bang was a literature student devoted to practicing novels in his mid-20s, dreaming of becoming a novelist. His career later helped him form his own distinctive visual grammar in his creative activities as a potter. Based on literary imagination, metaphor and symbol, Bang leads viewers to empathy with his personified swine characters.

Bang employs expressionist content and minimalist visual elements in his work. His work represents the gaze at his soul through recollections of the past in unique narratives. Employing a dramatic narrative structure in which a swine appears as protagonist, Bang acutely captures our diverse daily emotions - depression, anxiety, desire, obsession, loss, hallucination, horror - from the viewpoint of an animal. His small, cute swine characters echo viewers who think of them logically and rationally as weak, poor animals.Viewers obsessed with the pigs come to contrast their own life with that of the pigs cast in a dark shadow.

"The tiny swines in my work have human emotions. Depression, anxiety, desire, obsession from my daily lives, and  subtle emotions indescribable through language are conveyed to viewers through swine body language.  The space I dwell in is represented through abstract architectural structures. This is a floating space  dependent on memories of experience, rather than actual space our bodies exist in, or phenomenological  space where we meet the world and new languages are produced. Rational thoughts no longer exist, only  primordial emotions are produced in this space. Languages, produced within the interrelations between  buildings and swine unveil the mechanisms of the customs, regulations, desires, and power oppressing us.

The architectural structures do not exist independently, and remain meaningful only in relation with the  pigs. The contrasting scale between tiny swine and huge buildings, colors and lines of architectural  structures, and swine body language, are critical elements expressing the pigs’ psychological state.  Night is when these feelings most revitalize. My desire, covered by daytime consciousness, ancient wounds  submerged in the unconscious, and unknown anxieties, reveal their entities in my night space. While making pigs and constructing buildings, I emphasized the momentous and impromptu rather than precise  any anatomy or accurate design. So I believe I can reach the world I have imagined through primitive senses left after excluding reason.” Chang Hyun Bang
