Whither goest the helmet hair, the shit-ton of makeup, the pageant smile, and the weird plastic surgery?

The Venice Biennale 52nd International Art Exhibition opened this week and runs until November. Yale-trained artist Hyung-koo Lee is reprezanting in the Korean pavilion of the show. His exhibit, “The Homo Species,” features fossils of cartoon characters (Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry) and an installation of surgical implements and devices like the ones used to distort Lee’s face in his self-portraits:
The Korea Times reports that Lee’s self-portraits were created, “(d)uring his study in the United States…in an attempt to overcome his inferiority complex as an Asian man.”

No need to have an inferiority complex, anymore, Hyung-koo Lee. Your art rules, and you’re adorable, too.
