Curated by Jae-Young Kang
Centre for Contemporary Photography and Asialink have embarked on a cultural exchange program with the Whanki Museum in Seoul, Korea. The program includes an exhibition by two contemporary Korean artists at CCP as part of the 1997 Melbourne Festival.
The two artists - Kyung-Hee Shin and Ki-Won Park - are renowned emerging artists within Korea's new and booming contemporary arts industry. Their exhibition at the Centre, Duration of Sense, promotes a central role for the senses in the experience of art.
Kyung-Hee Shin's work is hand-made and finely crafted. Ki-Won Park's work is minimal and industrially manufactured. Yet both artists render a range of subtle, expressive effects. The exhibition's curator Jae-Young Kang remarks: Through these artists' work we can sense the flow of life essence, and transcend the cold reflection of objects to perceive something drifting like a pale memory; that is the duration of sense.
The exhibition marks an exciting phase in Asia-Pacific cultural relations and provides Melbourne audiences with a rare opportunity to see in depth some of the best new work from Korea.
Exhibitions by Kyung-Hee Shin and Ki-Won Park comprise the second component of a cultural exchange project between CCP and Whanki Museum in Seoul, Korea.
