Description

OUT+STANDING - Somi Hong
We challenge all rules, canons, and guidelines that have controlled our mind. The power of our collective critique goes beyond the formal possibilities of questioning them and reaches deep down to the root of the semantic structure of them. Our old perceptions should be dismantled and reassembled through our artistic practices, otherwise the chances of conceiving new perceptions would be slim. Therefore, we have to stand up and recognize the hidden mode of our perceptual framework. Our perceptions give us windows to see the world, but it means the size of our understanding is shaped and restricted by our own perceptions. We have to find a way out of them. Art makes us rethink all forms of established values. This is why art matters today. This is why we insist “standing outside” rather than “seating inside”. In that way, we can invent our own paths to the future.

Jeong(靜) - Jin Sup Yoon
Jeong-Joong-Dong literally means motion (Dong) in the middle (Joong) of stillness (Jeong), conjuring up a scene of serene surface with turbulent stirring of water underneath. Jeong (stillness) brings to mind an image of quiet surface and, in case of modern fine art, the monochrome. The artists who immersed themselves into learning the media, form and structures of the painting and the sculpture belong under this category as well. Their works and activities might seem quiet and calm, but inside their stillness is filled with intense creativity and clear foresight.
