More informations


Mun-Gi Yang was born in 1970 in Gwangju, South Korea. He graduated from Fine Arts at Chosun University. In 2012, the artist-sculptor presented Story of LUXURY STONE at the Okgwa Art Museum, South Korea. This exhibition revealed the particular attention he pays to the meaning and symbolism of the luxury bag by exploiting the aesthetic potential of stone. In this exhibition, 45 works proposed to question the nature of the object and the human being and the structure of social mechanisms in the elaboration of contemporary desires. These Luxury stones, although initially appearing as parodic works on Chinese counterfeit bags from major brands such as Louis Vuitton or Chanel, go far beyond a simple imitation or representation of these objects. By the very characteristics of these stone objects, the useful function of the bag disappears. Losing all functionality, the object is now transformed into a symbol-object, an icon.
