Shinuk Suh’s sculptural practice is invested in the dissection of structural ideologies. Using Louis Althusser’s definition of ideology as having a material existence representative of the ‘imaginary relationship of individuals to their real conditions of existence,’ Suh’s work delves into his personal experiences of ideological enforcement.
Suh confirms that ‘Korean society, my family background, religion and education are powerful forces, so the “ideal” human image is still suppressing me.’ Suh’s multi-media sculpture "The Perfectible Body" encapsulates this vulnerability of the human condition to overarching forces of technology, capitalism and cultural ideology.
