T Magazine: London Art Fair 2016
Hanmi Gallery was featured recently on the T! Magazine website, the article talks about Guem MinJeong’s works at London Art Fair 2016.
“Another interesting discovery is Guem MinJeong (Hanmi Gallery). In her first London solo exhibition, the South Korean multi-media artist presents visual recreation of interior and architectural features through a series of videos. She fuses moving images with the warmth nature of sculpture, the artistic area where she is trained in.
“These two elements fusing together bring up ideas of Ying and Yang, man and machine and so on,” Heashin Kwak, Hanmi Gallery’s director, told us. “She is one of the few artists that I found that has achieved this level of uniqueness combining these two complete different elements.”
What we see, indeed, is not a space or the representation of a space, but its transformation. The best example would be Breathing Door. As stated by the artist, in the experience of moving there is “the essence of humans through these vacuums rather than to construct a narrative film or virtual reality” (press release).
Do not be confused: the artworks do not frame a space which moves inside, but create a space through moving images.”
