Coco Sung studied painting in Korea and contemporary jewellery design at Burg Giebichenstein (Halle a.d. Saale, Germany).
The work of Coco Sung (1979, Uslan, South-Korea) resembles altars, images of saints and ex-votos. The incredibly beautiful and lavishly decorated brooches and necklaces can be seen and worn as intriguing amulets or talismans. This ‘Monster’ amulet necklace resembles a mask. All over the world, masks are used to protect, to disguise, to perform, to play. Masks refer to identity. Coco Sung tempts you to reflect, enjoy and submerge yourself in a world of amazement and wonder. Sung shows us how to understand and embrace our reality.
Coco Sung’s work can be found in private collections in the Netherlands, Germany, Hungary and USA
