At the Surround Audience Triennial exhibit going on now at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, photos and sculptures by Korean artist Onejoon Che, a former military police photographer, explore the faux Soviet socialist-realist style of sculptures produced by a contemporary North Korean art studio specializing in the construction of massive public monuments in Africa. At once poignant and comic, these images touch upon military and economic geopolitics.
