THE ONE PIECE OF ART
IM CHUN HEE
SEPTEMBER 6 - OCTOBER 28
THE ONE PIECE OF ART, The seventh project, introduces IM CHUN HEE's solo show <WALKER> from September 6th to October 28th, 2023.
This exhibition represents works that capture the artist's process of taking photographs of the changing natural landscape and environment while walking around her studio for an extended time and expressing them through her work through the artist's new emotional communication through those records.
The scenery of everyday life seen from the artist's perspective has become a way to communicate with the world, and every day, she goes for a walk, not simply for relaxation, but to take a step forward with an earnest will for life. The landscape photos captured along the way are piling up like records, and we follow those steps and walk together on a new journey path.
As the artist walks around her neighborhood repeatedly daily, she encounters common aspects of nature such as familiar trees, grass, roads, sky, sunset, wind, and wildflowers. Such appearances are so joint that we pass them by and do not attach much meaning to them. However, there must be a reason why the artist is interested in all of these things and captures them in her eyes while taking walks repeatedly as if she were going on a journey as if projecting what she desperately desires. Deep emotions and connection arise as if looking at the artist's paintings because we encounter the story of the time the artist focused on.
Through her work, she shows the feeling of walking silently toward the right path in relationships, which is what we should do through walks. The end of a careful brushstroke is always full of rough, fluttering energy and longing, and we can feel the wriggling movement to go somewhere. In the hidden expressions, the eyes become more earnest. A mixture of laughter and sadness appears, and the appearance seems humorous without hesitation, probably because the artist's unique emotional excitement is well captured.
This exhibition introduces small oil paintings on canvas to better understand the main work. Above all, six paperworks painted in oil on Fabriano paper, rare among the artist's works, are introduced.
With the theme of 'walking,' the artist's walking path around her studio was created with added visual beauty from the perspective of the artist's feet. The video work is co-produced by ARTBN and SPARKY VC.
