Artist’s statement

 

« Information only from our vision could be not the truth. It is very strong yet very doubtful. So I believe that what I can only trust is what I have experienced in the end; however, for artworks I attempt to make “as if” situations. The situation and the feeling when you understand a theory of what it is, what to do or how to do a thing but your body actually does not react as your mind. There is a gap or delay between perception and recognition or the time when what is in front of you does not link to what you know. A surprise, a deception and illusoriness are important for my works to represent the ambiguous and uncertain ground of dualism.

My practice often explores the relationship between force and form and ideas and artworks are heavily reflected upon exhibition spaces. First of all, I was very fascinated by the gallery space that consists of a variety of odd rooms with unique shapes. Obviously, the gallery has also its history that evolved to its present layout, regardless of the original function of each room. Because of each of the rooms’ unique characteristics, I am fascinated by the transformation and shifts, of our indoor activities at home or at any other buildings—choosing a function or naming and defining a concept, and then shifting from our imaginary or conceptual to the real. My attempt in this exhibition is to show another possibilities of the transformation of organic forms with experimentation on desires underneath of those changes. »
