ming yi sung

Ming Yi Sung is a fibre artist, and has found her voice in crochet sculpture, creating large scaled assemblages and installations.

An extract from her artist statement goes some way to explain her androgynous forms:


Based on my personal mythology, there once existed a creature, Androgyny, who took the form of both sexes. As time went by, it lost some of its own physical identities and split into two separated sexes, as we are now. Somehow the soul within us still holds the personality of both sexes.

Cool work!

Aristophanes (in Plato’s Symposium) describes this notion of one sex becoming two. Interesting read, actually.
