“Korean artist Yong Ho Jihas expanded his ‘mutant mythos’ series, continuing to create sculptures with layers of used tire strips bound together by synthetic resins on supporting frames of steel, wood, or styrofoam. examining genetically modified organisms and darwin’s evolutionary theory, this body of work depicts eight stages of transformation in the tradition of classical sculpture: carnivorous, herbivorous and omnivorous animals, anthropods, fish, hybrid animals, hybrid humans, and finally humans”.
