Essay by Annette Tietenberg.
The outdoor sculptures of renowned Korean metal sculptor Tai-Jung Um are prominent features of Seoul's urban landscape. Um is best known for having ventured a redefinition of sculpture during the 1970s and 1980s, an artistic risk catalyzed by sea changes in American and European art at the time, and his groundbreaking work melded those new influences with his own cultural background and Buddhist roots. As a professor at the Academy of Art at the Korean National University, Um has passed on his knowledge and sense of artistic adventure to another generation. Sculptures and Drawings features a selection of his most significant pieces, and illustrates the development of his oeuvre since the 1960s, placing special emphasis on the striking recent works that demonstrate his masterful command of aluminum. Also included in the survey are the artist's fascinating large-scale pen-and-ink drawings.
