Artist's Note

Hallucination-External Objects/Self

Exhibition Jan. 2 - Jan. 11, 2019

Venue Gallery DOS(New Bldg. 2nd fl.)

 

 

『Hallucination is defined as a mental phenomenon which has no perceived tangible object existed, and as having a representation perceived as if it actually exists. In other words, it means “a psychological factor that determines objects in this rising world of phenomena as objects to be seen, or a conflict between psychological states to remove unstable factors from unforeseeable circumstances not to be seen.』

 

The hallucination casts a question about the intrinsic qualities of reality and pseudo-images, causes to trigger egoistic phenomenon of intersection, strife, contact, interval, anxiety and refusal between self and the outer world, inspiring us to quest for something within the boundary of ambiguity.

 

Boundary of Ambiguity which means 'maximization of something unstable not exactly defined, and their boundaries’ approaches the absence and loss of modern times, sense of distance in relationship, and sense of oneness. Of Hallucination-Humans and Plants or Boundary of Ambiguity through Humans and Nature, the art works such as <Yin (陰)>, <Void (空)>, <Am I a Butterfly? or Is the Butterfly Myself?> attempt phenomenal deviation of sense of distance, wholeness, and realistic forms toward unrealistic state through stream of consciousness, coming near the object through hallucinated state and ambiguous boundary.

 

Realistic forms of objects to be seen, approach to them and empathy into them, transformation and breakaway, and the state of wholeness are mindset shifts and deviant consciousness, serving as a clue to undo the boundary of ambiguity and through it we look at objects and accept the current state, and discover intrinsic nature of self and others.

 

Pseudo-image is a false phase of the world that does not exists in real world. What is an intrinsic nature that a real object has? Approaching objects that exist in real world and relating oneself with others in intrinsic nature of adjacent individual, is to attain the primary process of access. Phenomenal shifts through boundary of ambiguity, intersection, and communion among individuals, are made in a way of active intervention of essential interpretation together with empathy, such as discovery of difference, homogeneity and other images. Actually existed objects do not remain static, but instead constantly interact with each other within organic relations. The quest for intrinsic nature of the reality, either living or unliving, realistic or unrealistic, goes beyond the boundary of self and the others, and the ambiguous boundary of reality and non-reality to find oneself ultimately. The phase that exists actually is combined with those which do not exist, and the virtual world of pseudo-images, is combined with or divided into the real world, frequently crossing the phenomenal boundary.

 

Hallucination - External Objects/Self seeks a way to get a deeper understanding of phenomenal world of consciousness through approaching the intrinsic qualities, empathy via communion, sense of wholeness, mindset shifts and division substantiality and immateriality that exist somewhere between the real world and the world of pseudo-images.

 

This exhibition <Hallucination-External Objects/Self> is a derivative in line with those abstract works under the propositions of Neither Exist Nor Empty (非有非空) which has been proceeded since 2000. 'Neither Exist Nor Empty' is about unity of external objects and self of accepted phase and unaccepted phase.

 

Recent works are categorized into Neither Exist and Nor Empty. 'Neither Exist' is about substantiality and immateriality of an object while 'Nor Empty' is centered on emptiness that is not real. Thus 'Neither Exist' poses a question about the meaning on the boundary in the world of hallucination where concrete factors of reality are in conflict with virtual world, and 'Nor Empty' extends the factor of abstractness, and allows lines and blank to occupy the space.

 

Art works on this exhibition display the first series entitled 'Chuang-tzu series of Virus-Hallucination' which represent existing thematic consciousness, and the second series of recent experimental works entitled 'Void - Hangang Dokjo (Sole Fishing in a Cold River)'

 

The first series 'Virus-Hallucination, Chuang-tzu Series' include 'Virus-Where is Chuang-tzu today?', 'Am I a Butterfly? Is the Butterfly Myself'. In the Chuang-tzu series, 'Virus-Where is Chuang-tzu today' portrays the wisdom of leaving nature as it is, recognizing the reality of nature that Taoist thought teaches, and 'Am I a Butterfly? Is the Butterfly Myself' tells about the level of unified external world and myself.

 

Chuang-tzu series show the boundary where unity of the external objects/self is attained, as construction of hallucination-fragmented scenery and isolated representation. The external world and myself narrows the essence and united state as a boundary of ambiguity within the phenomenal world of reality and existence.

 

Hallucination helps to find solutions and values at the center of the boundary going through division and dissolution, where the reality and unreality coexist.

 

The second series, Hangang Dokjo, means Sole Fishing in a Cold River to describe the level of freedom from avarice, and further quest for absolute level of nature and human existence attained through nature. Hangang Dokjo placed at the center of old painting mode in the period of the Three States, is expressed in a novel way based on the modern construction of the abstractness to recreate as sublimated world of nature and human beings through experiments.

 

Tang's Yoo Jong Won recites in his poem 'Snowfall on the River' as follows,

 

"Not a bird flies in any mountain

Not a man is seen on any road

A lonely old man in a straw raincoat on the boat

Is fishing alone on the snowy river"

 

On the snowy river filled with chilly air, a lonely man experiences in oneness with nature, as the external objects and self are united into one, leaving nature as it is; ultimately the old man encounters with the world where there is neither external objects nor self.

 

 

Themes of the Present Exhibition: Hallucination-External Objects/Self attempts to approach the boundary of existence and the boundary of void, through the boundary of ambiguity between self and the substances, trying to come closer to the intrinsic qualities through fragmented scenery and isolated representations.

 

Within the worlds that exist and does not exist, ego experiences constant stimuli and series of incidents through diverse interactions and exchanges in daily living freely going across the boundary of the external world through reality and phenomenal actions.
