Korea / Japan Art Communications 2019

韓日藝術通信

2019.9.3–9.15

This is the third exchange exhibition I’m participating in, for the second time in Cheongju, Korea.  A total of 23 artists installed their artwork in the Ochang Gallery. For this event we chose the theme ondo ( 温度 / 온도 ), which literally means temperature. In both Japanese and Korean languages this word has connotations to levels, similar to how we use degrees in English—ondosa ( 温度差 ) is a term adding “sa” or variance, meaning the differences between people in their perception of things, such as their level of enthusiasm or nuance of opinion. Before this exhibition, just before printing our publicity materials a trade war broke out between our two countries, soon after at the Japanese Aichi Triennale a politicized sculpture was removed for the “safe” operation of the event. We thought it’s important to address and differentiate ourselves from the hostile politics that we don’t want to define the relationship between Korea and Japan.
