Korean Box

The people look like wax figures encased under glass and on display. And that's the point of Atta Kim's photograph exhibit at Yossi Milo Gallery. Called "The Museum Project," the artist creates his own version of a museum in which people are sealed in glass boxes as though they were historical artefacts. I loved Kim's color in these large images, although I thought his concept was little bit obvious. The nude imagery reminded me of the work of Spencer Tunick in which naked people are laid out in very public spaces. (Images via Yossi Milo Gallery)
