Osang Gwon: New Structure and Relief

Osang Gwon

Arario Gallery, Seoul

07/07/16 - 08/21/16


Osang Gwon is an artist who endlessly indulges in the new formative structure and attempts experimental fusion of media rather than expressing representational figurative sculpture based on modeling. For significant years, Gwon had discovered and polished the grains of new stratum of sculpture within the various media and images, and thus introduced number of series throughout diverse variation of structure. Through the series of these processes, the artist relentlessly discharged serious questions and thoughts about the sculpture per se. The respective series New Structure and Relief presented in this exhibition, is also in the similar context.

As an appropriation of Alexander Calder’s Stabile series, the New Structure series carries colossal significance in the time and space surrounding the work, particularly, the external environment or its relationship with people rather than the significance as sculpture limited to materiality. Gwon magnified the collected images of the object, produced them in flat surface, and then structuralized those surfaces into three- dimensions. And it presents the spatial mise en scene ever-changing from the movements of the viewer. If the artist’s thoughts on sculptural language meaning spatiality could be read in the New Structure series, then the specialty of Gwon, the collection of image and its sculptural arrangement should be paid attention in the Relief series.
