Sangho Noh creates fiction from stories and images collected from everyday life, and then ventures out with his Märchen Carriage, a creatively remodeled handcart, to spread his fiction in a non-linear way.
His story expands into other forms of media, such as drawing, painting, and performance.
One of Noh’s major experiments has been reproducing his original works with different mediums and materials. While the reproductions share the same images with the original works, they consist of different pigments and background mediums with differentiated density of image.
Noh also adds different images together to create a new work. These reproduced works are scanned with a high-quality scanner, compiled into digital files, printed, and disseminated the vast digital world of the Internet through various social media.
THE GREAT CHAPBOOK presents Noh’s 200 artworks, which were produced through this cyclical reproduction process across the physical and the digital world.
