The Unknown Series No. 4: Unknown History

Creating a single work involves an enormous amount of time and endless experimentation. A myriad of experiments are performed during that immeasurable amount of time. Thus, each and every work derives as a result of the accumulation of those experiments.

How do artists of the present age, who create works in their respective locations, inherit, face and overcome the "history" that is behind us?

The three venues in this exhibition have been respectively given the themes "Conflict," "Flow/Oral," and "Eternity." The three venues and the exhibited works will all interconnect and expand, while also gaining depth through the idea of "history."

I hope that viewers will perceive the artists' attitudes and views toward "history," which are manifested in their works and words. I have no doubt that their works will allow the viewers to focus not only on the "present" state but also further into the "beyond."
