기억을 드로잉하다: Winding Memories

2017.04.26 - 05.10 

  아트스페이스 담다(이하 담다)는 "기억을 드로잉하다(Winding Memories)" 전을2017년 4월 26일부터 5월 10일까지 연남동 전시공간에서 개최한다.

  담다가 위치해 있는 연남동은 서울과 의정부를 잇는 경의선의 지하화 사업과 함께 폐철로는 공원이 되었고, 과거의 경적소리가 울리던 동네는 이제관광객들의 이야기소리로 가득하다. 미로같이 얽힌 골목골목 마다 하루가 멀게 다양한 공간들이 새롭게 문을 열고 있으며, 보다 신선하고 감각적인 문화를 찾는 많은 사람들이 연남동으로 모이고 있다.

  김상균은 시멘트 캐스팅 작업을 통해 급격한 도시화의 일면을 보여준다. 근대 건축물의 파사드(façade)를 하나의 단위로 삼아 새로운 집합체의 형태를 제시하는 작업은 경제논리와 개발이라는 명목 하에 사라졌고, 사라지고 있으며, 앞으로 사라져갈 도시와 그 도시의 삶들을 대변한다.

  김승영은 작가가 태어나고 살아온 세월 동안 만나고 기억한 이름들이 한 덩어리로 모은 작품을 선보인다. 함께 모여 알파벳 대문자 I(나)의 형상을 이루는 이 이름들은 정체성이란 개인 고유의 것인지 아니면 사회적 산물인지 질문한다. 우리는 이를 통해, 공동체적 정체성까지 사유를 확장해나갈 수있다.

  류신정은 존재의 최소 단위를 상징하는 작은 알갱이들을 모아 하나의 생명체를 이루는 작업을 선보인다. 도시와 자연의 관계에 대해 고민하는 작가는 이러한 작업을 통해 현대인에게 자연의 생명력과 동시에 도시 속 군집의 생명력을 함께 상기시킨다.

  박선기는 단일 개체들의 응집을 통해 새로운 격식의 조합을 만든다. 작가가 원재료를 재가공하고 공간 속에서 다시 제시하는 과정 속에서 관객은 하나의 결과를 보는 것이 아니라 각자의 해석으로 작품을 마주할 수 있다.

  이 전시는 빠르게 변화하는 연남동의 중심에서 장소와 그 장소에 얽힌 기억, 그리고 새롭게 만들어지고 있는 기억들을 그려보고자 기획되었다. 도시개발과 젠트리피케이션(Gentrification)은 비단 연남동, 또는 서울에만 국한된 고민은 아닐 것이다. 또 보존과 개발 사이에서 무엇이 옳다고 속단하기도 아직 이르다. 다만 담다는 이번 전시를 통해, 공동체와 장소라는 주제로 연남동을 새롭게 조망해보고자 한다.

  Railroads used to run through Yeonnam-dong located in the northern part of the Han-river in Seoul where Art Space DA:MDAA is nestled today. The abandoned rusty railroads turned into a park a few years ago. Since then, the park has transformed the landscape of Yeonnam into a hip cultural area. Young folks, residents and artists now bustle around the clock. This park is often dubbed as Yeontral Park in Korean, which literally means ‘Central Park in Yeonnam’.

 

  In line with the transformation of Yeonnam, Art Space DA:MDAA is pleased to present the "Winding Memories", a group exhibition of drawings by four artists. The show exhibits each artist's drawing procedure of his or her work. The works at this exhibition suggest to us how we in a specific space and an area interact with our surroundings, which shape our memory and self-identity as a result.

  According to SeonGhi Bahk, he tried to represent with charcoal an end of nature. It is because charcoal agrees to his perception that everything in nature dies but is born again. The series of ‘An Aggregation’ installation works are each consisted of materials such as charcoal or acrylic beads etc. His installation works made of fragile materials look solid from a distance, which turn out illusive to viewers while they walk through his installation works.

 

  "Reminiscence of a forgotten area surrounding us" is a key subject to SangGyun Kim. The artist has paid attention to cement mix as one of the core materials for his sculptures. To many of us, cement mix is associated with industrialization. The artist’s cement-cast works appear like an aggregation of façades of modern style buildings that come and go in a blink of an eye. His cement-cast façade works resonate with the viewers by expressing how on-going urban development in an area could re-align people’s surroundings and their memories accordingly.

  SeungYoung Kim’s “Memory” expresses his own path of finding the true identity of a self. The names of the people in his memory are randomly dotted forming the letter “I” on a Korean paper. The artist questions to us how a self-identity is defined by whom.

  ShinJung Ryu has speculated on restoration of the Mother Nature throughout her career as an artist. The artist uses granular materials in her artworks as she regards them as the smallest substance of the Mother Nature. She has built up organic objects such as flowers with granular type of materials. It is because she thinks that they could instill vitality and liveliness into our daily life in urban areas.

  Art Space DA:MDAA has watched how our neighborhood turn around since its inception in Yeonnam. We also wonder how 'we", as an insider and an observer, will be viewed and thus remembered by our visitors and neighbors in Yeonnam. We hope to share our memories with yours. We wind the memories so that you can rewind them later on. Then, the area surrounding us could stay in our memory even if they are gone from where they are today.

Tues-Sat 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM / Sun 1:00 PM- 5:00 PM
