Han Ho: Eternal Light ● "Work is something to be felt with the heart, not to be seen with the eyes." When we stand in front of the work of an artist, we read his mind and communicate with him. It is because the artist communicates through his work and the piece stands out and shines only if it reflects the mind of the artist. 'Why this work has been born? Where is the starting point and how has it changed?'If we open our mind and try to concentrate on the work, we may feel and hear its stories.
Han Ho completed his bachelor's, master's degree and doctor's course in Department of Fine Art of Paris 8 Vincennes University, and he travelled around Paris, New York and Beijing for 13 years to work. He expresses through the work, based on his memories from childhood, human nature and reason for being which lead to inner conflicts and hope. In addition, he brings the theme called Eternal light as his own artistic symbol to express life and death, lingering imagery and hope through the performance which combines large installation art with music.
He uses the mechanism of contemporary video screen based on fundamental and traditional oil painting technique to show the work breaking the boundary of time and space, video and painting.Integrating work with various factors using LED such as media painting, installation art, kinetic art deserves much attention. Through the color of light which gradually changes with time, the work expresses changingseasons and it indicates day and night. It also revives a three-dimensional painting containing another life by putting the light on two-dimensional painting.
"Bill Gates also had inspired by looking at Picasso's work when he designed the conceptof multitasking window. Scientists should know the art and get inspired by looking and feeling the art. Then if you can come up with the emotion that you can create your own, it might result great achievement which can lead the new age"±, Han ho emphasizes that the organic relationship between science and art is to develop its relationship as complementary rather than individual subject. ● Furthermore, his works, inspired by Korean and Western paintings, classical landscape paintings, modern art, are all rooted from different cultural backgrounds. ● He recommends "opening the eyes and ears to embrace everything in the world and it is the beginning of the fusion in this era. Do not be afraid to collaborate with other artists". This idea accords with UNESCO's spirit: the cultural diversity improves creativity and the quality of life and provides a better life.
Byeong Sam Jeon: Barbershop Wonderland ● "My sketch of work begins when I meet unconventional materials." The memories of childhood for an artist could give effect in different ways on his art world. While becoming a famous interactive artist at home and abroad, Byeong Sam JEON's works are characterized by recalling the forgotten objects which never have attracted people's attention, and using them to revivify the works.
As we can see on the participatory kinetic sculpture "O"(2016), influenced by the traditional form of a moon jar and permanently installed at the Gimpo International Airport in Korea, the selected motif for his art work comes from some old and traditional materials or abandoned equipments. He brings them out to the world and revives them. ● "Since my childhood, I played with building materials spread all over the construction site where my father worked, and with colorful fabrics that my mother used. Therefore, my works reflect those childhood memories".
A very old neon lamp at barbershop stimulated his inspiration for this exhibition. The barbershop can be characterized as a place where the most warm and basic conversation of human being could be shared and thebarbershop lamp certainly has symbolism. If we pay attention to the sound of 200 lamps spinning, it will lead us to the pathway of nostalgia and a warm and cross-border conversation. The second work is the fan which will be disappeared soon due to the development of technology and science. He tries to express with the wind a sudden change of the world, egocentric move of individuals, and the verbal violence caused by unrefined languages that makes this world suffering today. The messenger, which delivers by the artist the violent language and noise in this era, is one hundred fans.
In this exhibition, he will show the rebirth of culture and art through the combination of rapid developing science and his creative world of art as well as his enthusiasm for a new world of art and artistic charisma. We all hope to share the lesson and sympathy from this media art exhibition in UNESCO that culture leads industry and industry evolves into art so that it can achieve mutual development. ■ Mia LEE DERVOUT
