About the Artist
Artist Susan Lee-Chun uses inflatables as a means to make unconscious or intentionally buried perceptions in our social fabric impossible to ignore. Her cheekys culpture “Untitled (Flamingos only hang by the pool)” enlarges pink flamingos, a common symbol of Miami Beach, to an impossibly large size. Their imposing pink bodies force viewers to consider the pink flamingo with all of its flamboyant symbolism and history. For some viewers, the flamingo may embody Miami, Florida, and the never-ending supply of chotskies tourists buy to remember their fun-in-the-sun vacations. Through experimenting with massive scale, Lee-Chun creates an amusing critique of consumer culture.
