Earlier this month at Museum of Goa in 2017, Sung Dong Hun began developing a new body of curiosities - the raised hoof of a reclaimed toy horse morphs into a barren tree branch, an open music box displays a horse and its rider configured from nothing but spare baubles and gizmos; a miniature, gilded rickshaw replaces one hoof of an antiquated wooden cow while a metal statuette substitutes its missing ear; a raging bull is mounted by some variance of Don Quixote, his face suggested by nothing more than a carved trinket case. In each assemblage, the disjointed figurines transcend their cartoonish moorings to suggest both dysfunction and intrigue associated with urbanized socio-cultural paradigms.
