Exhibition poster of 《2019 Title Match: Gimhongsok vs. SEO Hyun-Suk—Incomplete Ruins》

《2019 Title Match: Gimhongsok vs. SEO Hyun-Suk—Incomplete Ruins》 presents newly commissioned works by Gimhongsok and SEO Hyun-Suk. Gimhongsok has been reinterpreting concepts and ideas that are embedded in different phenomena that occur in and around art, disrupting the conventional perception of art. In the meantime, SEO Hyun-Suk has been examining the meaning of theatricality and architecture by connecting different places and locations under the context of modernity. For 2019 Title Match, the two artists created new works that investigate the conditions of validity for today’s art that exist in a world where absolute values are vanished and our senses are captivated by the capital and its spectacles. In 2019 Title Match, Gimhongsok’s “incompleteness” and SEO Hyun-Suk’s “ruins” are working as concepts that are employed by the artists to make candid confessions about the confusing state of being artists in the era of no absolute values and reveal a process of thought towards art activities. The ways through which the two artists create their works seem to point to disparate directions that cannot be matched under the frame of “title match.” However, the different elements employed by the two artists generate meanings in a certain structure. Presented together within the framework of 《Title Match》, Gimhongsok and SEO Hyun-Suk’s works build multi-dimensional collaboration.
