current exhibition
 

Kim Jintaek is a contemporary Korean artist, he works in fine arts media-painting and sculpture as well as installation art. Kim’s work spans a variety of media that not only operate in tension with conventional art historical associations of such media, but which also establish tensions with each other when deployed in a successive phases of an exhibition: abstract painting; monumental portrait sculpture; and relief. A unifying feature of the diverse media, and a key to its expressive aspect and engagement with society, is that it invariably employs material constituents that are not merely symbols of consumption, but which are themselves the residue of consumptive acts.

金鎮宅是韓國當代藝術家,曾以木工維生且學習雕塑的他對人類大量消耗浪費木柴的現象有特別深刻的感受,於是藉由被丟棄的木材而開始一段自我省思的路程,並在作品中廣泛使用被視為廢棄物的木材作為主角;類似的概念也展現在使用舊銅器、房屋拆遷的廢棄物、骨頭、咖啡渣等失去人為定義功能的物品,隨之賦予他們嶄新的生命。
