Sung Yeonju is an astonishing Korean artist famed for her incredible series of dresses made from various foods and not just ‘easy’ ones either, things like tomatoes and prawns too! But before you get too excited by the thought of wearing these dresses I have to tell you she is a fine artist who uses photography as her main medium to create her vision (insert disappointed face).
This series deals with the concept of creating images that interchange the actual reality and the made-up reality on many levels. This body of work is her version of the made-up reality, which destroys the core meaning of clothing, which is the ability to be worn. This series of her work forces viewers to defy the actual meaning, functionality, and the aspects of what clothing signifies in our lives.
