Nov 20, 2010 - Jan 02, 2011In this context,“Collage of Memor ies, ”the exhibition of contemporary Korean art, redefines the concept of‘collage ’ through 10 artists who have unique understanding of media, history, private memories, culture, and globalism&identity.

This means we need to see more than a physical technique or a marriage of heterogeneous materials from the exhibition. What becomes more important is a philosophical attitude that can spread over any expressive medium. Those 10 artists commonly arrive at an aesthetic position that makes not only a methodological bridge between art, novel, poetry, architecture, and motion picture, but also a chronological link between the present and the past and even to the future. We need to see collage as not a form but an attitude to open, link, and mix the seemingly incomparable multitude.

Aug 21 - Oct 24, 2010Hong Ling is well known for utilizing western painting technique in the realization of eastern art. The way in which he combines new and old allows Hong to focus his inner sensory experiences and extend them infinitely outwards into the natural world, re-crafting individual scenes through hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste.
Some have described Hong’s landscapes as reminiscent of the female body; the layers of misty whiteness covering luscious pinkness, the green buds faintly shimmering behind the branches, Hong against a powerful brown rocky mountain-face. This is the skin on the back of a woman’s neck where it meets with the hairline, the ever so slight dryness of her lips on first waking, the shallow alluring valley tracing her spine, a woman breathing; the dampness of her breath.
