Space Willing N Dealing will present Oh Rose!, a solo exhibition of work by the artist Yeesookyung from September 10th to September 27th 2020. Yeesookyung, a well-known figure in Korean contemporary art, was invited to the core exhibition at Arsenale of the 2017 Venice Biennale and was awarded the Korea Artist Prize 2012 organized by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA). She is active in her artistic practice and has participated in international art exhibitions at numerous international art biennales, museums, and galleries.
Yeesookyung’s painting series also introduces the aspects of her art practice of imaging the invisible as the series is based on visual experiences not seen in reality, in phenomena such as dreams, unconsciousness, and landscapes from different dimensions. The exhibition, Oh Rose!, will present images of various surreal landscapes, all containing roses, that take shape in the form of drawings and paintings. For the artist, the rose is also a symbolic element that leads to an unpredictable and uncanny world that unfolds via the unconscious, beyond the limited temporality of the present. In this exhibition, Yeesookyung presents several drawings and paintings inspired by the rose that she encounters in a passageway to enter into other dimensions of space-time, the realm of the unconscious.
