Negative Images is a showcase of the world where yin and yang, color, and light and shade are reversed. Such reversed images or negative images appear unfamiliar and even mysterious to us. This exhibition displays the visual shock caused by reversed images. This world of negative images consists of such elements as shock, paradox, traces, and unconsciousness. This world astonishes us (Strange) through a reversal of familiar quotidian scenes and generates a paradoxical, absurd state (Trace) through an encounter of reality with imagination and yin with yang. It also visualizes intense memories and traces (Trace), or draws out the unconscious inherent deep in our minds. This art show provides us with an opportunity to experience a new world, not merely the world where yin and yang, color, and light and shade are reversed. It is dedicated to experiment and the expansion of contemporary Korean art through an exploration of a new formative world of the negative.
