JUNSEOK JANG
Persicaria perfoliata (2017)

Junseok Jang (b. 1970, Korea) is best known for his visual experimentations with the Korean word ‘flower’ (or ‘꽃’) in various mediums. The motif has been realised as painted stainless steel sculptures or flat plastic modules installed like tiles on a floor. In a departure from his previous work, Jang uses the Korean word ‘forest’ (or ‘숲’) as his main motif. However, like the “Flower” series, Jang continues his exploration of the symbolic system of communication. If each word can be considered a unique character that inhabits its own formative allure, Jang takes the encoded visual stimuli to re-articulate the system of communication beyond its language borders.

Korean artist Seoung Won Won's solo exhibition on view now @gallery_arario thru June 25
.
.

The final photographic outputs of Seoung Won Won (b. 1972, Korea) are the results of thousands of images taken by the artist, which are deftly collaged into impossibly real landscapes. In “The Sight of the Others,” Won presents new metaphorical landscapes that convey the many facets of seven specific occupations: the journalist, IT professional, professor, pharmacist, financier, public official, and researcher. The works are based on Won’s curiosity in understanding if 'the job determines the identity of the person’. Preferred occupations usually have defined, professional characteristics and emanate a specific character. However behind the aura of success are challenges no different from other occupations. Animals and landscapes are brought together in exotic mis-en-scenes that articulate the rift between the myth of success and the reality of obligations, competition and wear. The landscapes, though tragic, unfold as beautiful alchemies and become reflections on human society.

In Manhattan's downtown art scene in the late 1970s and early 80s, a young Taiwanese artist by the name of Tehching Hsieh (b. 1950) made an exceptional series of artworks. Working outside the art world's sanctioned spaces and economies, Hsieh embarked on five separate yearlong performances. In each, he made a strict rule that governed his behaviour for an entire year. The performances were unprecedented in terms of their use of physical difficulty over extreme durations and in their absolute conception of art as a living process. In 'One Year Performance 1980-1981', Hsieh subjected himself to the dizzying discipline of clocking onto a worker's time clock on the hour, every hour, for a whole year. In 'One Year Performance 1981-1982', Hsieh inhabited a further sustained deprivation: he remained outside for a year without taking any shelter. Each work convenes different methods of documentation, challenging what it might mean to archive a life. This exhibition is curated by Adrian Heathfield and is a Collateral Event of the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. .

The installations by Lee Kit (b. 1978, Hong Kong) demonstrate his intentions to radically expand the framework of painting. In Lee's third solo show at @ShugoARTS titled “Not untitled,” the artist uses several walls to partition the gallery to create a maze. His projector paintings (next images) cast a net over the fragmented space and stitch dichotomous elements—including viewers’ own shadows—into a heterogenous vertigo-inducing mix in which the gallery functions as Lee’s canvas.

“Abstraction of the World” is a collaborative exhibition presented together with the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018) curated by @mami_kataoka_2018, Chief Curator of Mori Art Museum and the Artistic Director of the 21st Biennale of Sydney. Since ancient times, human beings have been fascinated by the structure of cosmic space and the natural phenomena of the world. Fundamental elements such as light and darkness, wind and rain, water and fire do not have fixed structures or form; therefore, they have often been depicted by different cultures and civilisations as abstract forms. Such examples can be found in East Asian belief systems and folklore, such as Taijitu (太極図), Wuxing (五行)and I Ching trigrams, as well as in various Indigenous cultures around the world. This exhibition features work by three artists from the Asia Pacific region—Mit Jai Inn, George Tjungurrayi and Haegue Yang—who through their research and repertoires, reference and explore such concepts in abstraction. As Mami Kataoka notes: “"Abstraction of the World" explores some of the diverse philosophies surrounding the essential elements of the universe, investigating a pursuit of meaning in abstraction that goes beyond modernist perspectives of abstract expressionism and minimal, conceptual art. It is a reflection of some of my early thinking about the 21st Biennale exhibition opening in March, 2018.”
