Rook Floro is Bangkok, Thailand, and currently lives in Birmingham, England.
His art investigates ideas of human metamorphosis and particularly the tension between desiring change and appreciating oneself. Floro believes that advertisements, media, and social networking, friends, as well as our friends and family, all drive us to seek impossible perfection.
Shadow is a sculpture and performance piece inspired by Jung’s theory about shadow, which concerns with the repressed ideas, weakness, and desires of oneself that the conscious mind refuses to acknowledge. This piece represents the artist’s own shadow and desire to be different and perfect.
