Lila Jang

Lila Jang, a young sculptor from Seoul, South Korea, makes a practice of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Inspired by the limitations of a small apartment and the desire to escape the often monotonous routine of real life, Jang finds utopia by turning the traditional idea of furniture literally onto its head. Tables, chairs, desks, and stools take on the fluid, playfully exaggerated and voluminous characteristics of fantasy home furnishings, becoming whimsical pieces that are anthropomorphic, gestural, artful and vaguely humanoid without completely disconnecting from their original, more functional nature.

Says Jang, “My work represents who and where we are as human beings: in the midpoint of that constant struggle between reality and the ideal.”

Jang received her BFA in Sculpture from Hongik University in Seoul and her MFA from Ecole National Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.  Her most recent solo exhibition took place at the Centre Culturel de Coreen in Paris, and she has participated in group shows and art fairs internationally, including Paris, Zurich and Basel (in Switzerland), Seoul and Busan (in South Korea), and Sarajevo.
