Sixth sense refers to a mental ability that allows one to be in touch with a world that cannot be perceived by the five senses, i.e. sight, heading, smell, taste, and touch, by utilizing more than these five original senses. Some may call this sense intuition, instinct or inspiration.
Artist Aram will display three flat-panel works: "11 APR. 2019," "20 APR. 2019" and "13 APR. 2019." Using the question, "How can I not speak?" as her point of departure, the artist is working on ways to minimize the artist's subjective use of language.
Artist Kim Ji-young will present four paintings made by coloring hanji paper with powder and silver dust. "Sky Light 1," "Sky Light 2," "Wind Light 1" and "Wind Light 2." The author, using water as a mysterious material that reflects one's own image and that is simultaneously colorful and colorless, to portray small circles with diverse forms like stones.
Bae Jung-eun will unveil three installation works: "Destiny," made of wire and fiber, and acrylic paintings "Inner Space" and "Outer Space." Through works that focus on the ego or inner self, the artist is expanding her scope to make her art, from her textile installations to her acrylic paintings, more visually intricate.
