The Sculptor Created a Series of Bizarre Sculptures that Represent the Skeletons of Famous Cartoon Characters


From his wearable devices exaggerating physical features to sculptures and installations featuring skeletons, Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee’s bizarre, experimental artworks reexamine the confines and possibilities of the human body.

The pseudo-scientific nature of Lee’s artworks is perhaps best reflected in ‘Animatus’, a series of fabricated fossils of famous cartoon characters. In order to construct the skeletons of Bugs Bunny (Lepus Animatus, 2005–6) or Tom and Jerry, Lee carefully studied animal anatomy and the characters’ external designs. The sculptures, which are all made by hand, are products of negotiation between science and cartoonish exaggerations.
