Decoding Dictatorial Statues

Description

Decoding Dictatorial Statues is a collection of images and texts revolving around the different statues behave in public space. How can we decode statues the agency of their sculptured body language and their sociopolitical role as relational objects and media icons? Coupling a designer's perspective with an analytical approach, Ted Hyunhak Yoon explores the cliched poses of dictatorial statues. In his image analysis, he lays out a choreography of these sculptures and uncovers the non-verbal rhetorics that shaped them. In the visual framing opened up by Hyunhak Yoon's image research, readers can zoom in and out of the various narratives on offer.
