One could say that Mother Nature herself played a leading role in these elegant artworks by Korean artist Yeonju Sung.
Sourcing local produce and using her extensive imagination and sculpting skills she’s created ‘Wearable Foods’ a series of stunning dresses & outfits created entirely from different food groups. No needle and thread, exotic silk or tighlt wound wool, just plenty of tomaotes, bananas, eggs and chives fused together.
It sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, but as you’re about to see her work is meticulously crafted and the results are stylish and at times awe-inspiring.
“As time goes by, the food from my work do go through a progression of disappearance due to the nature of food and gets gradually changed into the hideous state fading its shape and color in the process. I drag out the types of images that can only exist in my mind and imagination into a reality and yet, it eventually disappears. I have physically made these images but they are the creation of illusion and ultimately what you see is the images of phantoms. “
