    Fountain - Korean Artist Bohnchang Koo

Bohnchang Koo, Fountain #8, 1997

When we touch water, we don't say it is soft, but if something absorbs water, it is softened. The water is the idea of softness. Now the image of the circular ring of self-perfection becomes the image of the womb. The womb comes to us as softness itself. He gives us the womb in which all life is made. He gives us the womb, which is identified as the deepest origin by its softness. Thus the visitors who view his artworks become conspirators with Bohnchang Koo in his attempt to make a universal womb.
