In his new sculpture series Hyungkoo Lee has created the skeletons of iconic cartoon characters. The realistic skeletons are posed performing familiar activities as in their ‘real’ animated lives. In this creepy cartoon world Tweety Bird can still be found running from his nemesis Sylvester the Cat and The Road Runner from his nemesis Wile E. Coyote.
The sculptures are presented in a natural history museum style which makes the objects feel strangely more realistic. Each installation is carefully crafted using resin and then magically displayed in action like a frozen episode behind an x-ray machine. Can you recognize all of the characters?
