"Through my work, I am sharing stories about restoration of relationships between humans and animals" -Noh Jun
Noh Jun believes that people see the light of this world from the infinite grace of God. And he applies the same truth to the animals because in the story of Noah’s Ark God called not only humans but also animals coupled together in order to extend the lives harmoniously. However, humans began to reign over animals and began to think that animals’ life is less valuable than humans’. Humans even started to abuse the closest animals like dogs and cats and distorted the relationships. Jun creates animal sculptures with human-like figures to deliver the message that both humans and animals have one life and that they are equally valuable.
