Naldak is the starting point of my works and an object that fulfill my desires. The life of a chicken that has been tamed from human resembles myself having to accept the demands of society. This idea of losing individuality in a standardized society motivated me to create a series of Naldak ceramic art.
Rather than being frustrated in the uncomfortable reality, those oppressed chickens challenge themselves in order to find freedom in the surreal world that I created, flying farther, loving each other, and having adventures around the world. I hope that my audience can imagine freely and draw their lives full of infinite possibilities through Naldak.
