Ran Hwang :: Dreaming of joy

Dreaming of joy is a wall sculpture/installation made with pins and red buttons by Korean artists Ran Hwang.

“In her work Ran Hwang addresses current social issues, particularly menial labor and its relation to the glamour trade, but also the timeless spiritual concerns. The overall effect of her work is to enable commonplace materials and processes, while simultaneously authenticating two different kinds of grandeur: pop-cultural and divine.” (edit from Richard Vine’s article Present absence: dual realities in the work of Ran Hwang, Art in America)
