Korean artist U-Ram Choe believes that everything with life has movement. By adopting movement as a vital component in his work, the artist gives birth to new mechanic creatures. As all living organisms are, the mechanic creatures are entrapped in past, Present, and future. Feeding off of human insolence and desires, these creatures propagate through an autogenetic process in their own secret environment.
The artist names each with a term he has generated by combining the names derived from plants, animals, machineries, or materials that closely resemble the hybrid creature alone with the name of the “discoverer” - the artist himself.
The narrative component in his work persisted since the very beginning of his oeuvre. With Ultima Mudfox(2002), U-Ram began to deliberately bring out the history and tales of his creations. U-Ram’s narrative power breathes life into these otherwise solid masses, which now coexist with humans in a new time and space through his imaginative power.
