Korean sculptor Young-Deok Seo has been busy since his earlier works. Seo has continued working almost exclusively with reclaimed bicycle chains. Seo most recently exhibited at SODA Gallery in Istanbul. A statement from that show said:

Seo Young Deok’s work aims to reflect the disease-like contamination we experience caused by materials in our society, he hopes to reveal the amount of suffering it places on the modern-day human. To express this, he utilized metal chains to create the modern man. Chains were made by our civilization and created through mass production, yet it is also just one accessory, one part in a massive piece of machinery. He considered each part of the chain a human cell and used the chains to create a human figure. Thus, this being’s form has been created in contamination by materials in our current world.

You can see more of his work on Facebook.
