"TECHNE +"

This exhibition observes the various phenomena that occur at the point where two disparate substances meet, blend and traverse.

The first dot appears where the horizontal and the vertical intersect.

Yin and yang, longitude and latitude, weft and warp.

As the contrasting substances intertwine and fuse, a dot emerges.

This miraculous combination, fusion of contradictions becomes the beginning of all created living things.

That one dot is eternal without boundaries. 

We are always at that intersection.

In hoping that someone responds by instinct to the subtle vibrations occurring at that intersection…

"Layers"

 

My work begins with reminiscence. As countless memories and experiences overlap our life strengthens, and from reminiscing we realize that life was beautiful. I consider everything beautiful from the transparency and mystery of the glass itself to it’s shadow under light. Hot-melted glass is like an intangible state before the object takes shape.I roll hot glass on the end of the pipe and repeat the process of coating the surface with a layer of bubbles and then wrapping it with glass. This procedure allows the countless air bubbles to be trapped in the glass which eventually becomes a grain. Through the process of lacquering—applying layers of ottchil, then carving it—the once-hidden glass resurfaces with the grains, leading one to look back.

If you look closely, you can observe the colour of the glass shining amongst the grains of lacquer as well as the layers of the countless bubbles. I hope that the mysterious depth reflected through the layers will bring the shining memories back to you.

"Architectural Elements"

 

The exhibition "Architectural Elements" is the introduction of a series of projects with the main theme of relationships (relationships between; people/object/space interaction). I look at the elements that make up the space, such as walls, floors, ceilings, doors, and windows one by one, and move my interpretation and perspective on them to work.

"The Soul of an Ungcheon Potter"


The foot of the Bogae mountain in Ungcheon, Jinhae of Gyungnam is a historic place where Buncheong and white porcelain were produced from the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty until the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592. The Japanese ruling class admired the tea bowl of Ungcheon—called ‘Goryeo Dawan’ in Japan. By the end of the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592 and 1597, 125 potters and their families were forced to relocate to Japan. As a result, the flames in the Ungcheon Kiln Site were extinguished and the tradition of the Ungcheon Tea Bowl ceased to carry on.

"SEED"

The artist humbly refers to his work - which were mad through thousands of breaths and touches - as seeds. However, his work, which boldly turns its back on instrumental function as a tool and was created solely for the symbolic and aesthetic functions of art, has already outgrown the sprouting period into an expansion period of dispersing lives.

"Think Different by Steve Jobs"

Here's to the crazy ones.

The misfits, The rebels, The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify 

About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think 

that they can change the world the ones who do.

"Objectlogic Chain"

                                               

In his work to date, Kim has focused on clothing as his chief medium, exploring its potential for expandability. Investigating possibilities of form that originate in the different perspectives assigned to clothing, he expands and reproduc- es the identities attached to these forms. In this process, he takes materials and forms from the virtual world and artistically recreates them within the analog realm, situating them at the intersection of different categories. In this way, his work has been an ongoing experiment with re-establishing categories of objects through methods of juxtaposition, parallel, and amalgamation.

"The Touch of Ordinary Life"

Touched by Ordinary  

The ordinary act of placing something in is perhaps the most important purpose in everyday use. However, the action is what people are easily unaware of because it can always be combined with a daily routine. The weight that lay indifferently in mediocrity creates a special time, and again, the precious moment soaks back into our ordinary routine and keeps its place unnoticedly.

An Moon-Su's Solo Exhibition


"A person in a small block of wood"

An Moon-su's small people are a part of the work, he has been carving since 2015. Interestingly, all of his human sculptures start from different trees, and are mostly small in size. The people whom, he as been sketching and sculpting whenever he had time means not only just a rest and play but also fully the artist himself. While many artists mostly choose materials and expressions with specific intentions and seek the process of work, An Moon-su maintains the proper line of enjoying himself in his unintentional work and life, as he described it as "Escape". In addition, the non-intentional nature rather gives these little pieces a broader perspective and a margin of thought. It is recommended that you look closely at those, who seem familiar but are distorted. You can also take a look at them from further afar with the time and margin of your own.

Kwon Hyun-Bhin's Solo Exhibition


"Ongoing Track" 

Kwon Hyun-bin considers substances composed of particles, such as styrofoams or stones as a virtual space, and takes interest in the sculptural act that can be carried out in and outside such mass. 'The stone existed in the past and will exist in the future. I would stand in that middle of it and imagine the stone that has yet been sculpted. Whether it is large or small, flat or round, the stone will eventually be hammered, rubbed and chipped by nature or a person. The changes to the stones are left as traces enabling us to imagine the stone's future shape. Therefore, even if the stone is just standing still, it is oscillating as it creates great possibilities and its traces.

"Descendants of Joseon Potter"

The heritage bequeathed by the unknown last descendants of Joseon potter are revealed to the world as they are taken out of storage. The potteries were made from the firewood kiln in Songchoo, Gyeonggi-do half  a century ago. The white porcelain jars, plates, and big bowls from this kiln were produced by several skilled potters, using the traditional methods of collecting and washing the Yanggu white soil, and preparing the clay to mold it with a wooden wheel. In the ambiguous period of the late modern age between Joseon and contemporary eras, the main stream of poteries was making of celadon porcelains and buncheong ceramics as traditional handed down way, while the white porcelains were rarely made. Through this exhibition, we wish these modern white porcelains to be revaluated as the historical and artistic pieces.

Teaware Exhibition, Korea-China-Japan

"The tea ceremony is a normal, everyday hobby of making fire, boiling water, and tasting by brewing good tea. It is just washing teacups, carrying water, and drinking it when you feel thirsty. However, regardless of such ordinary daily work, there is no way right. Zen also does not leave the usual state of mind. For this reason, the tea and zen become one."


[Source: Encyclopedia of Korean National Culture]


In this exhibition, you can appreciate the shape and beauty of different tools used in the tea ceremony, and feel the philosophy and passion of the craftsmen contained in it. Through the teawares exhibited, it is possible to experience the similarity and differences between the three East Asian countries.

"The traces of experiment" 

Han Jeong-yong is a potter and a senior professor majoring in crafts at the Department of Design at Seoul National University's College of Art.
"
The foundation of craft includes materials, techniques and the sensitivity of a craftsman. Craft is commonly identified as technical skill and workmanship, while material forms the basis. A craftsman normally involves throughout the whole craft making process, in which understanding the materials comes at the very beginning. Material is an indicator that classifies various genres within craft. With profound knowledge of materials and craftsmanship, craftsman create beautiful pieces of crafts."

This experiment he does not only aims to produce various stoneware clays and glazes with different characteristics but also structure a system of materials by making stoneware objects.

The craftsmen hopes the audiences momentarily peek through the lives of ceramic artists, understand how the materials are prepared and what kind of processes the artists go through before creating the daily objects.

"Taste of Plant" 

It was completed through long-term planning and detailed work and captured the portraits of newly discovered plants. Although, they were photographs created by the pigment printing method on special paper for printmaking, the artist intended to make them look like prints or paintings. Just as he converted plant works into pictures, he hoped that the extraordinary boundaries between the mediums would become ambiguous and collapse. instead of reproducing the images of nature that have been customarily landscaped, he tried to discover the unique expressions of plants through sculptures.

"A Bowl of Memories" 

 

People accumulate various of experience through life and the experience leaves various emotions and memories. However, as time goes by, the space or objects in one's memory that one experiences can rapidly change or disappear, and one may forget that they have disappeared or changed. Experience becomes a momentary past with the flow of the time and the past can't be set back nor go back to the space of the past. Eventually, the experience and emotions from the past becomes a form of memory, and memory becomes a important factor in our lives to recall the past.


I’ve worked in Kyoto for a long time. The image of Kyoto was different from Seoul where I was born and raised, the old buildings, cultural assets, and nature were well preserved. When I came across the beautiful nature each season, I could see the time flow, and there were lots of space where I could see and feel the passage of time. As a result, I often recalled memories that I had not felt in Korea in Kyoto, and based on this experience, I started working on the theme of「Traces of Memory」by recalling memories in Korea.

"Just Craft" 

I want my craft to be "Craft", rather than a design or an art Craft is just a craft. In my craft, there are 4 keywords: hand work, artistic sensibility, beauty, and practicality. 


My wooden bowls overcome the limit of practicality that existing wooden bowls could have through the application of 'Lacquer thermal curing method'. The practicality of my wooden bowls is expressed through the guarantee of hygiene of the food and bowl, easy-washing, maintenance, waterproof, and abrasion resistant. 'Lacquer thermal curing method' is a traditional lacquer curing technique which the application on wood was carried out for the first time through my wooden bowls. The lacquer thermal curing method is a technique where solidification takes place after it is put in a kiln heated up to several hundred degrees celsius. Greenwood and a kiln seemingly are not mutually compatible words. In fact, it is very difficult to sculpt greenwood within 3mm and not have it cracked in a 250 degree kiln. Therefore, to manage the moisture content of wood, I give my best on managing the entire work process. The wooden bowl made in this technique does not give off any hint of lacquer when used for food or in environments within 250 degrees celsius. Moreover, it has a great waterproof capacity, enabling the growth of aquatic plants in it. And of course, it is washable with detergent.
