Dialogues of Space
December 15, 2015 - February 6, 2016
Korean Cultural Centre UK
(Grand Building, 1-3 Strand, London)
The Korean Cultural Centre UK presents Dialogues of Space, an exhibition that explores physical and metaphorical spaces through the medium of photography by Korean contemporary artists Onejoon Che and Heeseung Chung. The exhibition, on show from 15 December 2015, has been curated by MA students from the Whitechapel Gallery and London Metropolitan University.
Onejoon Che’s precise documentary photographs of architectural structures, abandoned urban sites and buildings provides a conceptual counterpoint to Heeseung Chung’s large-scale, intimate and poetic interiors, opening up a discourse on human presence and its echoes through cityscapes.
Seen together, these bodies of works show personal and political spaces in Korea’s present social and physical landscape. Sparking a discussion of the role of contemporary art in the representation of society, Dialogues of Space highlights the skill and versatility in contemporary Korean photography.
