Sungho Bae(b. Seoul, Korea 1988) is an artist working primarily in sculpture, video, and installation. He focuses on re-rendering the visual domain, considering images as mediators, consumption as a strategy, and humans as mutants. This is to navigate the mechanism of the image-making system and how an individual processes such images as superficial data. The symbiotic but dissonant relationship between the visual status of collected images and their context has been the driving force behind an act of repurposing. He received a BFA from Seoul National University and an MFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Above all, he is an avid toy collector.
