Gallery Korea of the Korean Cultural Center New York presents 《Beyond Boundaries》, the first Call for Artists 2019 group exhibition that showcases works by nine artists: Jihyun Hong, Nayoung Jeong, Jong Sook Kang, Bonam Kim, Gene Kim, Kieun Kim, Genevieve Quick, Jaime Sunwoo, and Jeongwon Yoon. New York-based artist Jihyun Hong’s installation work explores how graphic images that are consumed through monitors have real-life effects. Nayoung Jeong introduces a performance video on the themes of identity and sense of belonging, and Jong Sook Kang an installation piece which shows a scenic view of Manhattan through abstract expression, using apples as the medium. Bonam Kim examines the relationship between place and identity through miniature figures, sculptures, and video works, while Gene Kim explores the theme of communication and the relationship between language, environment, image, and object through an animated piece. An abstract form of a silkworm cocoon in Kieun Kim’s installation work expresses a self that dreams of purification and a hope to move forward. Genevieve Quick and Jaime Sunwoo tell stories of Asian American identity through a performance video work based on the Korean moon jar and an installation that shares the memory of Spam, an American icon of canned cooked pork, respectively. Jeongwon Yoon resists today’s institutionalized world and longs for freedom through her chandeliers and installation works.
