Born in 1955, Ahn Kyuchul is a Korean sculpture and installation artist, writer and teacher. He has taken a different path to the circle of Korean sculptors who mainly work on decorative art and monumental sculptures, preferring instead to work with mundane objects like the hammer, the door, the table – objects with no real meaning or aesthetic value. His work explores aims to realise his long and profound examination on life and what contemporary art could be.
He is the artist chosen for the 2015 edition of the Hyundai Motor Series at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea’s 10-year long project to support solo exhibitions of distinguished Korean artists with distinctive practices.
