Artist Statement


My line-series installation art
My line-series installation art, composed of a lot of lines, converts established places into another space by functioning as a gigantic object of the exhibition hall. Entering such a newly created space doesn’t mean looking at a certain painting in a passive fashion, but directly experiencing the substantial encounter between the space of installed artworks and the viewers with the latter taking part in my artifacts as the main characters of the background of the stage. 
Extending space
 I have created installation artworks involving producing huge three-dimension drawings in actual space for 10 years. Of them, some works are the white tube space of an art gallery, and others include old houses, empty commercial buildings and outdoor space, etc. I have divided space by enormously drawing the flexible walls that make architectural functions get lost through the space cubic drawing of various indoor places. I maximized the effect of optical illusions and the formative density of cubic lines through the relationships between shade and light. With the help of my experience of having experimented with indoor installation works tens of times and my accomplishments, I am attempting at the next stage of extension.  
Drifting
We refer to the act of  floating on the  water aimlessly as drifting, which also refers to the act of wandering aimlessly regardless of will, having lost a certain purpose or direction. The state of endlessly progressing in an unexpected  direction due to  continuation of a pushing may perhaps be similar to the state of “weightlessness.”Ultimately, it is not  a matter of  being  dragged while  having lost  will and in a state of  relaxation but merely surrendering oneself to  a kind of  so-called compromise, floating and drifting within the continuation of pulling and pushing.
