With another eventful year coming to a close. this contemporary art exhibition will offer visitors a chance to reflect upon themselves.
Exhibition planning agency LEESANG ART Co. (director Lee Sang-mi) will be holding the exhibition Be Yourself from Dec. 18 (Wed) to Dec. 27 (Fri).
The exhibition will feature a total of ten contemporary works of art, including paintings, sculptures and installations by the two artists, Kim Young-jin and Park Jung-woo.
‘Be Yourself’ means ‘acting naturally.’ People today form relationships in society, oftentimes withholding their true nature. ‘Be Yourself’ presents people with the idea ‘just be yourself rather than following or imitating others.' Artist Kim Young-jin will present a total of five paintings on canvas, including a serial work of three paintings ‘Flower of Dowon’ (2019) and a serial work of two paintings "Free Resuscitation" (2019). The artist works with materials that reflect within the canvas in order to encourage viewers to reflect upon the causality of the object that shines tangibly through moonlight. Through his artworks, the artist encourages us to think not so much about the importance of the medium, but rather the artist’s attitude, or aestheticism, which ought to be studied ceaselessly as it is essential in these modern times.
Artist Park Jung-woo will display a total of five artworks, including one work from the sculpture installation "Expiration in Old Age" (2019), two works from the series work "Salted Savings" (2019), and two works from the series "Hadaly" (2017).
Through images associated with the meaning and the role of art, the artist creates a process of reasoning and continues to work with the mindset of appealing to his audience.
