Current Exhibition

Kim Myoung-Jin’s Solo Exhibition


The artworks from Kim Myoung-Jin have been popular in the prestige international art fairs in Miami, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, etc. Kim’s works were chosen as one of the best emerging artists at the Gallery Weekend Korea 2016 in KIAF exhibited at the show titled <Gallery Showcase>in Blue Square, in addition to the 50 Must See Artworks by in 2016 Miami art week. He narrates his own stories overpassing the boundary between consciousness and unconsciousness through the series of ‘Edgewalker’. He is gazing at the riot inside as he is walking on the edge of enormous space. At the moment it is captured by the artist, objects are sucked into an unexpected space. In the scene, stories, the artist encountered in his life, are scattered like debris from explosion in the chaotic space to construct a space of fragmental narration not the perspective space. To imagine how fast the artist is rotating at the edge of the scene would be one of the joys of admiring the painting.
