Similacrum Lucida: Yundoo Jung and the kids come to life

Just came across this MOST fabulous artist – Yundoo Jung.
Currently living in Korea, he studied here at Central St Martins and Goldsmiths about the same time as I was at uni in Sydney.

This series in particular, “Wonderland” from 2005, are just gold dust. He’s recreated children’s drawings as photographs, with all their abserdities and surreal strangeness built in.

Also loved the title of one of the articles written about his work:
I’m a bandit, and I shall take away thy pride.
-Yuko Hasegawa [Chief Curator, Tokyo National museum]
