Places of Residence Remember Their Residents.
Kim No-am(Curator, Art Space Hue)

Nowadays, artists became models or examples for a beautiful life. People, whatever they do, often go back to artistic life in the course of a usual lifecycle. Ordinary life turns into artistic life. Arts led people to look over their lives. They are far from idle spectators, reflecting into their lives while tripping outside and inside the center of their lives. To the artist, ‘a place of residence’ is where daily routine is beautified in mixture with the values of life.
The place of residence is similar to where a house is, but includes the human life and culture that it has not. A residency includes the physical aspects of spaces especially focusing on residing persons out there. Human beings are put on the first priority. Therefore, where they reside is not an issue of real property but relates to the affluence and refreshment of life and living. In other words, the artist’s image comes from what the residency is esthetically interpreted.
This exhibition at Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon shifts to that of urban city from the image of woods, like repeating the history of mankind. Artists’ pictures capture the existences across the woods (whatever spirits they have), paralleled or overlapped by images in multiple dimensions, resulting in their unique, robust patterns. From the exhibition, ‘a place of residence’ is also exceptional.
Gaepo apartment in Gangnam-gu, stairways in Anchang town, Busan, Sibum apartment in Bukahyun-dong, Seoul and Itaewon and others. Alleys move surreally, and apartments with cracks and crevices are materials for formative arts. A mass of footsteps on playing grounds are in synchronism with voices of children out there. These works are filled with metaphors of lives that are twisted, intertwined, interrupted or fulfilled. The places of residency create a fantasy in the mixture of the past with the present.
On an alley where someone passes by, the traces of ordinary peoples’ touches and lives are shadowed. Their silhouettes are represented by the vestiges of their lives lingering on the residency of people who never reveal themselves in the works. Any residency without human footsteps is full of epic poetry that depicts a myriad of human lives, tinged with reflections and yearlong experiences.

To artists, their residency turns into an esthetical being. The residency does not exist as they are. It is reminded of a certain past, history or horizon. Human beings do not recall their residency but the esidency does them.
