Shopping with the Family

Sculpture, Bronze, 2013
Location:  Bedok Mall Level 1, Singapore

 

Specially commissioned for Bedok Mall, this set of sculptures by Korean pop artist Kim Gyung Min features a family of five happily going shopping together. The larger-than-life figures are deliberately distorted to give an effect of caricature. The elongated necks, big broad smiles, super long legs, oversized shoes - all exude a sense of fun. Their vibrant colours further add to the work’s overall cheerfulness.
