"...In Seo’s work, something is being simultaneously made and unmade. A shaped identity is violated, converted into raw material. There is no not interacting, no not transfiguring in and with this piece. Having lived in three different continents, Seo, a peripatetic artist, asks us to consider identity as a continual process of transition. To him, the act of shredding is both a painful shedding and an unforeseeable reconfiguration. Such a process is both coercive and freeing, both corrosive and constructive."
