Choe graduated from Chung-Ang University’s Department of Sculpture in 1993 and then received an M.F.A. from the same university. Choe has been interested in machines since childhood and has been releasing “kinetic art,” which combines sculpture with “movement,” for quite some time. He has held quite a number of solo exhibitions at places such as Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum, New York’s Asia Society Museum, and the John Curtin Gallery in Perth, Australia. Recently, he has mainly been showing his work at overseas events like the Shanghai Biennale (2006) and the Liverpool Biennale (2008).
