Lot Essay

Back invites us to a world of confusion in his series Real World, taken at Aiins World, a South Korean theme park which features scaled-down replicas of world famous sites. In this disorienting image, we see Korean turtle ships floating on the waters around Manhattan with the Twin Towers, the Chrysler Building and the Brooklyn Bridge against a real background of apartment blocks. His works have been shown internationally, including Fast Forward: Photographic Message from Korea at Fotografie Forum International, Frankfurt (2005), and the forthcoming exhibition Chaotic Harmony: Contemporary Korean Photography at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston/Santa Barbara Museum of Art (fig.1).
