Child Psychology in Picture Close
- Period/ 2013.03.09(Sat) ~ 2013.05.05(Sun)
My works on show at this exhibition aim to represent images from my dreams that made an impression on me during my childhood with reference to visual effects and principles found in specific notable paintings. They also intend to address the trauma I experienced at that time in three-dimensional installation work with reference to the principles of art psychotherapy. Inspired by the stark contrast of shades and surface textures in The Forest (1927-28) by Max Ernst and the unique, steep shapes found in the hills and mountains in the background of Flight into Egypt (1304-06) by Giotto, I compared such elements with those of the mountains I dreamed of as a child. The distinctive forms, tonalities, surface treatments, and techniques adopted in the two paintings were employed to create abstract three-dimensional representations of my dreams.
Africa, Afro Close

Sponsored and planned by the GMoMA in collaboration with the Africa Art Museum, this exhibition is designed to increase people’s familiarity with contemporary African art that is still not widely known to the public. This exhibition will allow viewers to experience African art laden with fertile imagination. It will also act as an impetus to show another facet of the modern creativity of African art to those who regard it as merely a genre of primitive art. The works on show at this exhibition contain the modest happiness that the contemporary artists from the African continent wish to attain for themselves as well as that which they hope to convey to us.
Difficult Play Close
- Period/ 2013.01.18(Fri) ~ 2013.03.03(Sun)
Since the fall of 2012, the GMoMA has run Difficult Play, a comprehensive plural art program with artists from a wide range of fields including community artists, sculptors, theater actors, traditional Korean music performers, intangible cultural assets, and media artists alongside the disabled. This program displays a process of communication and collaboration between ten intellectually handicapped individuals and six artists, disclosing the diverse conflicts, respect, prejudices, understanding, homogeneity, and incongruity stemming from the differences and distances among them. Unlike other theaters and performances by disabled persons, this program does not aim to reinforce their capabilities or enhance their social abilities through artistic experiences. This is a beautiful endeavor to discover freestanding artistic value by disabled artists in terms of diversity.
