26TH MAY 5:30-7:30PM – MAAP SPACE
Come along to the opening night event for our upcoming solo exhibition of artworks by Taeyoon Kim. MAAP SPACE will be open from 5:30pm and Curator Kim Machan will be giving floor talks until 7:30pm.
We look forward to sharing the artist’s three video works with you, and especially Steady Griffins (20414) – a five screen installation piece.
Be sure to read Seoulhui Lee’s interview with the artist beforehand to prepare yourself for a visually immersive experience. Interview available here.
See you there!
Taeyoon Kim (b.1982) currently lives and works in Seoul. Taeyoon received his BFA in Film and Video at the Art Institute Chicago and studied Live Action at the
California Institute of the Arts. Taeyoon is represented by ONE AND J. Gallery in Seoul, Korea and has exhibited in group exhibitions in Korea, Hong Kong and the United States. Taeyoon’s recent work explores post-Internet theory and his work is a unique materialized form of the data that drives society. The vitalization of the network interface, via websites such as Tumblr and Blogspot, has resulted in a new technology and method for collecting and sharing information. The particles of these individually selected bits of information and data creates oscillations due to the flow of data and the continuous transition and transformation of this flow caused by the process of an individual’s acceptance and sharing resulting in new oscillations. These oscillations of data particles generate infinite feedback via the creation of new links and relationships.
Many thanks got to the IMA for supporting our project through their generous loan of five matching screens which has enabled us to present Steady Griffins (2014) according to the artist’s intent.
