Kiss Lonely Goodbye, 2008

“I have been working by scrutinizing or altering the process in which goods are produced and value is added in today’s capitalistic world. Take for example my chicken meat baseball project. I purchased chicken from the market and sculpted the meat into baseballs. In this particular work, I did not become a consumer, the last person in the distribution chain, but rather chose to become a final producer. Instead of eating the meat, I made it into a baseball and offered it to the art world as an artwork and object of artistic discourse. […] Whenever I created works that cause confusion between the real and the image, I always kept in mind the work’s historical context.” Lee Wan
