Geumhyung Jeong at KLEMM’S


Painters do violence to faces, but sculptors love mockery the body, its forms, bulbous. Tragedies we have been given, our corpulent throes. And comedic our attempts at preserving that, "transformative props of body optimization:" our treatments to spas, acupunctures, health tonics, facial plumbing, giving facelifts to the homeless. Look at these medical forms of us, how Medicine represents us, physical embodiments of how doctors perceive us, dummies with occasional articulate forms, our comedy, dying animals all of us.
