Landscape: Lens

2019 - 2020

  Landscape: Lens (2019/2020) accentuates the viewer's physical presence in the exhibition. Images on the mirrors are Landscapes consisting of the anatomical images of the eye, such as the optic nerve, vitreous body, and retina. The reconstructed scenery based on the image of a sensory organ suggests that our body is a place where we sense the world. This work draws subtle movements of eye muscles that occur when viewers focus on the image of the work and change their focus on themselves in the mirror. Through this, the drawings on the mirrors serve as a medium like lens to make the viewer aware of the moment of observation, continuously contracting and releasing the muscle around their iris.

  Landscape: Lens series attempts to create cracks in the present space bound to the past histories or expectations toward the future by emphasizing the subtle moment of observation and the vitality of the present that the viewer can feel directly with the body. By turning a glance into bodily performance, attempting to cease a transitory state of the moment that will soon be absent, my work celebrates the unknown future by existing as an infinitely present, timeless, and ahistorical object.


  풍경_렌즈 (2019/2020)는 전시 상황에서 관람객의 물리적 존재감을 강조한다.

  거울에 실크스크린으로 표현된 이미지는 시각 신경, 유리체, 망막과 같은 눈의 해부학적 이미지로 구성되어 있다. 거울에 그려진 그림들은 마치 렌즈처럼 보는 사람이 관찰의 순간을 인지하고 홍채가 지속적으로 수축되고 팽창하는 매개체 역할을 한다.

  풍경_렌즈 시리즈는 직접 몸으로 느끼는 미묘한 관찰의 순간, 생생한 현재의 순간을 강조하는 과정을 통해 과거가 구속하는 현재의 공간에 균열을 만들고자 하는 시도이다.
