South Korean artist complains of censorship

Hong Seong-dam's work, depicting the president, was pulled from South Korea's international art festival.

    Hong Seong-dam was commissioned to make an installation for the Gwangju Biennale, South Korea’s best-known international art festival.

    But when organisers saw the finished, 10-metre long work, with its unflattering depiction of President Park Geun-hye, they refused to show it.
