Exhibition: Sungfeel Yun, Fields of Immersion
“Fields of Immersion” encompasses a range of Yun’s works that are bound together by the theme of revolution—cosmic revolution and the revolution of life in the scale of the human mind. With a profound and complex understanding of the balance between the obscure and the graspable perceptions of invisible forces, Yun embraces the universe and offers the audience tranquillity in chaos; stillness in movement; and immensity in visual forms in his final solo show in London after 6 years of work here.
In his artwork, Yun explores the connection between the theoretical sciences, such as string theory and quantum mechanics, and Eastern philosophies. By incorporating rotating magnets, motors, and action sensors in his Chaos, Cosmos and Circulation Series; structures reminscient of topological forms in his Energy Series, Yun opens a dialogue between physical science and aesthetics, bridging these seemingly contradicting ideas through artistic expression. The full circle motif he employs is more than a visual representation of the cyclic nature of creation and destruction—the Yin and Yang in Taoism and Buddhism, but a conscious contemplation of spiritual and physical laws from within and without the self and the cosmos.
