Abstract Expressionist Oriental Paintings in Contemporary Apartment Housing
Archival pigment print, νκ΅¬/silk mounting
This installation consists of a series of photographic renders of modern Apartment buildings. When isolated these minimalistic designs resemble Abstract Expressionist paintings. By placing the images in traditional Korean landscape frames it is not only the images that appear flat and in lack of perspective. Seen in this light they become melancholic icons of a transformative all-encompassing construction project that seems bound to replace historical consciousness with a (ironically) repetitive pattern of progress.
