Angel Soldier

Lee Yongbaekm, Angel Soldier

Artist Lee Yongbaek is representing Korea at the Venice Biennale with, amongst other things, a brilliant installation called Angel Soldier. This is a series of large colour photographs with related video and objects. It is an elaborate anti-war statement, understandable coming from South Korea with the most deranged country on earth on it’s border. An illusion is created in the dense screen of flowers, through which camouflaged figures can be seen.
