KIAF Art Seoul 2018 Program
Directed by Sunjung KIM, Gwangju Biennale presents ARTIST PROJECT, showcasing works by four artists participating in this year’s biennale. Given Gwangju Biennale’s historical significance and its presence in the international art scene, the special collaboration with KIAF provides a unique intersection with discussions around contemporary art and the art market. Featuring installation artworks by Lais Myrrha (Brazil), Mark Salvatus (Philippines), Ayoung Kim (Korea), and Sunghong Min (Korea) the special exhibition showcases new works that are porous in the ways they engage with history and each cultural context.
레이스 마이라 Lais Myrrha
Lais Myrrha’s installation crosses cultural borders by incorporating Korean modernist architecture with forms of Brazilian tombs.
마크 살바투스 Mark Salvatus
Mark Salvatus will develop work questioning the relationship between urbanization and socioeconomic status.
Min Sunghong has been working on the relation between one individual and another, and between an individual and an environment. He shows that individual identity can be abstractly constructed through recombination of objects. His works represent lives alienated by institution and gigantic systems and function as a medium that fuels introspection against conventional thinking.
김아영 Ayoung Kim
Ayoung Kim will present a video and an installation work, ‘Porosity Valley’, ‘Portable Holes’ that centers around the concepts of “migration” and “porousness”.
