『Acknowledging the Differences』 presents eight artists from Italy and Korea. The Korean artists; Jun Young Kang, Bo Mi Kim, Dae Chul Lee, and Yusun Jung, in their mid-careers, feature new works with their unique visual languages crossing East to West. The artworks are closely attached to the artists' personal experience and life events in which they express in diverse media in range of Korean traditional ink to lasor-cutting.
Jun Young Kang creates a story based on questions arose from his crucial life events, encompassing from love to making choices which everyone cannot avoid. The crossing paring of painted images, messages, ceramic, and traditional Korean pottery creates refined yet unconventional works of art. In his newest work, 'The first duty of love is to listen. 「OXO and XOX」' (2018), Kang has begun to investigate and convert the appropriateness of choices that one freely or irresistibly makes into signs.
Bo Mi Kim's Korean traditional ink paintings portraying magnificent yet serene scenery of pine trees are fundamentally based on Orientalism; a human being is a part of nature and the nature itself at the same time. The works are silently powerful and expand beyond the boundaries of canvas. While Kim's earlier works focus on herself, these new works encompass the relationships with others based on her appreciated findings such as the soil, the root, the pine needles, and the forest.
The coexistence of life and death in nature is vividly expressed in Yusun Jung's vibrant paintings. Jung feels the universe in her garden where she observes flowers every morning for over ten years as her mundane routine. The recurrence of flowers blooming and fading is never the same in shape and one doesn't exist without the other just like our life being full of contradiction. Her persistent attitude is not only the subject matter but also the medium, pigment powder, which requires intense labor and complex process to appropriately depict the energy of nature.
Dae Chul Lee questions the existence of truth through the most frank and unrefined spoken out words reflecting his emotions in certain situations. He uses diverse techniques such as scribbles, carving, and lasor-cutting. Lee's visual language is candid with a bit of a twist. In 'Scratch Documentary #1-(There's nothing I want to say)' (2018), the artist's physical markings of carvings for thousands of times is explicitly expressed. On the other hand, certain alphabets are intentionally hidden. Therefore, the gap between the two alludes to true meaning of the word. ● Exhibiting artworks of the Korean artists are deeply rooted in enlightenments and doubts of their life. Anyone must have or would have witnessed what the artists have experienced at least once in his or her life time. These fundamental questions are definitely not limited but expands into the world. ■ Hae Lin Park
