Pollination: Overlappings in Time and in Place
The story begins with a translation of the Mean "A lIfe in moderation and one knows when the situation will stand to hold the most appropriate — the relevancy of time and place.”
A fusion of work by contemporary artists chosen for their diverse and overlapping personal histories, vision and approaches to art making come together to create a great amount of synergy. After originating in distant geographical locations and cultures their work intersects: West and East; New York and Seoul; Gwangju, Damyang and Kingston.
By exploring what is most crucial to each artists practice and viewing this work both as individual statements and as part of a larger collective language, new forms emerge. These are defined simultaneously by distinct contrasts and shared concerns. All participants to varying degrees are crossing through boundaries.
Art fills the space with the high contrast of natural and synthetic materials, vibrant hues and muted tones. Traditional and experimental mediums collide and come together. Korean painting maintains its rich traditional use of materials while moving into a shared contemporary vision and context. Two Korean photographers and a sculptor form upstate New York embrace the nature surrounding them. Farming installation, social sculpture changing in time, paintings with food and parachuting young girls are only the beginning of what you will see.
