Artist

Gyeonggi Creation Center is in Daebudo, Ansan, where it contains multiple local characteristics of the western coast of Gyeonggi province. It has stories of people who have undergone dynamic changes in their lives from historical, social, and economical events with rapid and compact growth in the ways of western modernization. <2017 Gyeonggi Creative Festival Exhibition: The Plateau With A Wind> shows emotional narratives that are different but interconnected with the world. It is presented in alien’s view of indefinite traces from the long-ago and faces of lives that still undergo changes in the present time, which isn’t read or defined as general local identities with a series of episodic keywords. The artworks in the exhibition go beyond a simple place of a specific location, Daebudo, and understand the specificity of the present time. They also contain the artists’ sole perspectives and attitudes that recognize and project their interconnecting relationships and awaken inner potential. They focus on the relationship between diversely wrinkled and tangled time and place with direct emotions towards historic events that have been handled roughly in the past, sympathy and pitifulness towards the looks of the residents who had to adapt to life changes due to a short-sighted policy, and a lethargic attitude towards ecological changes from reckless development of the environment. They represent with artistic imagination based on an inner logical foundation.
■ Exhibition Introduction
MIN SUNG HONG
민성홍 작가 작품이미지입니다.
Overlapped Sensibility: Imbued
Mixed media, Installation variable, 2017 

MIN SUNG HONG focuses on experience facing unfamiliar environments, an invisible relationship in execution, and inner conflicts and emotional changes from experiences in cultural difference. The collected roofs from Daebudo show abandoned empty spaces from migration implicitly. They are placed with photographic records of layered bird-head shapes, produced by the slip casting method. The roofs are closely related to the local surroundings to adapt to the environment. It acts as a symbolic space borrowed from the miniaturized frame of life.

Yoola Shin
신유라 작가 작품이미지입니다. Veil II
Velvet, Curtain Rail, 320(h)x442(w)cm, 2017

Veil II looks generally white and like a fancy lace curtain but if you have a closer look, it is an image created by collecting and editing images containing scenes of a mass massacre and by burning away negative images on a white velvet fabric with the burn-out method. It displays the truth of a concealed past that is difficult to grasp without a careful and active interest and the current state of institutionalized passiveness towards them.

Son Minah
손민아 작가 작품이미지입니다. Tide Time
Mixed media, Installation variable, 2017

Daebudo is no longer an island after a connection with the land by the construction of the Shiwha seawall. Deabudo, where fishing used to be the major occupation, no longer has the water serving as its main industry. Its identity has also changed. The memory of the island is also fading away. By starting to call for fading languages of the island, tide time : Sari, Jogeum, Moosi, etc., the work questions the identity of Daebudo and starts to recall the memory of the island.

Yang Seungwon
양승원 작가 작품이미지입니다. Klein’s bottle
Pigment print, 120(h)x180(w)cm, 2017

Many instant changes coming from the process of blind growth and modernization lose their distinct identity without the essence inside. The current state experiencing sporadic standardized urbanization is hard to be recognized as if they are real or artificial and like the Klein’s bottle that has ambiguous inner and outer space.

Lee SUJIN
이수진 작가 작품이미지입니다. An island became an hill under the moon, the hill dreaming of the island : from the parallax between the rising tide and ebb tide
Mixed media, Installation variable, , 2017

LEE SUJIN focuses her interest on the geographical condition of tide time and represents the island as a huge living thing with a continuous cycle of extinction and formation. The work reflects imagination of the moment of the falling and rising of the sea on the other side of the Earth, where it is symmetrical to gravitational forces of the Sun and the Moon. It discovers abandoned and discarded objects that exhausted their functions during the practice of archeology of matters between the sea and the moon.

Yoon-Hee
윤희  작가 작품이미지입니다. Instant
Pigment on paper, Polyptyque , 2017
Drop
Aluminum, Installation variable, 2017

Small and large island sprayed on the west coast of Gyeonggi province has often calm or tough sea and wind. Yoon-hee focuses on the flow of the sea coming in various forms every moment. The artist visually reproduces momentary phenomena and the unseen physical potential of an object and shows its ways of the existence.

Woonyeon Chun
전유연 작가 작품이미지입니다. A Blue Haze
Mixed media, Video installation, 2017

‘A Blue Haze’ expresses interconnected relationships of elements such as free movement without a definite object, ambiguous time boundary from the interference of many moments, and the re-establishment of space boundary based on movements to escape or return to its original position in a visual video. Irregular regulations captured from the movement of trees by wind was imaged and overlapped with the artist’s drawing. The overlapped two layers interfere with each other and erase, fade, emerge, and cross continuously.

jeikei_Jeon Heekyoung
전희경 작가 작품이미지입니다. Bitter ideals and dawn
300(h)x260(w)cm, Acrylic on canvas, 2017
Bul-Do (written by Choi Yoonjung, curator)
Novel, Installation on the wall, 2017

Bul-Do, which is one of the islands in the coast of Gyeonggi province is currently included in Daebudo and is forgotten to people except for its geographical characteristics. Jeon Heekyoung illustrates an imaginary story with fantasy using a few related vocabularies to the island.

Chung Jene Kuk
정진국 작가 작품이미지입니다. A Song of Daebudo
Photograph, Installation variable, 2017

‘A Song of Daebudo’ is a series of ‘A Song of Korea’ tracing an intrinsic image of environment and nature in Korea. It mildly displays life and landscape of the coastal area of Gyeonggi province that has faded away with traces of modernization.

Choi, Jeong Soo
최정수 작가 작품이미지입니다. A Portrait of Our Times
Mixed media, Video Installation, 2017

The story of bay salt in the coastal area of Gyeonggi province is a history of colonial exploitation in the Japanese colonial era. Afterwards, Gunja and Sorae salt ponds, developed in the coastal area of Shiheung and Incheon, produced more than half of the total salt production amount in Korea but the history of these salt ponds started to fade away in the mid-1990s. However, in another side of the life journey during the industrialization and urbanization, memories kept by a father of a family and by a hardworking worker in a salt pond, are now aged over 70 to 80 years. The portrait that recalls stories of the workers melted under the hot sun does not only remind of an individual in an area but extends to history and short stories of our lives. In addition, it approaches to us by reflecting our lives in current days.
