Melting Bunny


Mixed Media Sculpture
by Soo Yeon Yun

Resin & pigment coat on plaster
Variable size

A bunny has a cute, adorable, and naive image and many children love it. Contrary to its childlike feature, a bunny has a sexual meaning, which refers a quick and minute sex, and simultaneously a promiscuous sex. The fact that bunnies are naive yet sexually bright is very similar to the hypocritical and conservative culture from my upbringings. Through making multiple bunnies, I mimic the bunnys reproduction, and also I try to solve my repressed desire.
