Yeo Won explores the relationship between the humans and materials. The development of material culture accounts for the emergence of modern civilisation. The humankind progressed by creating materials and exploiting the nature―the early humans had learned to raise livestock, acquire materials and invent machinery. The sophistication of our lives is fundamentally accumulation of material development. The artist embodies the discourse on inextricable connection between the humanity and materials. The collage work is composed of objects that symbolise aspects of civilisation. To create work, the artist draws elements from her own life and surroundings. The interplay of objects offers the viewers an opportunity to contemplate on the development of modern civilisation.
