Bargehouse Gallery, OXO Tower, London UK
4482-2019; The Other Side of the Moon Voices of Contemporary Artists from Korea and the UK Our world is filled with parallel matters whose values are often created by comparison and contradiction. Your fortune might be related to someone else’s misfortune. Wealth and poverty can co-exist within a society, yet the two are distant from each other. We often find comfort and/or despair within our own juxtaposed world. The other side of our world gets dismissed perhaps too often by ourselves, like the flip side of the coin and the darker side of the Moon.
4482-2019: The Other Side of the Moon showcases exciting artworks by over 30 UK-based Korean contemporary artists who investigate such contradictions and juxtapositions, the familiar and/or alien aspects of our world through their thought-provoking artworks. Their voices are collected, shared and presented as diverse dialogues through six powerful quotations;

Terminal O is a clinically tender compost pile of analysis and desire. It is also a group exhibition of 18 Contemporary Art Practice students from the Royal College of Art. Shapeshifting between geometry and orgasm, caught in the temporal glitch of a stillborn political momentum, Terminal O traces familiar and unfamiliar patterns of sense-making until it bites its own tail.

Bodies in Movement
01.02.2019 - 28.02.2019
Curated by LoosenArt, Millepiani Gallery, Rome, Italy
Within the exhibition, open for the whole month of February (1-28 February 2019, Monday-Friday 9 am – 6 pm), we can unavoidably notice references to chronophotography, performative dance as well as a ‘Duchamp-taste’. Where black & white nudities are immediately associated to Francesca Woodman or Robert Mapplethorpe, strong chromatic contrasts and blurry figures clearly recall Francis Bacon’s paintings. But the exhibition does not exclusively pay homage to the past: themes and poses, iconographies and compositions have an undoubtable modern twist, showing bodies, colours and compositions able to renew the tradition and talk to the post-modern time. In this context, the body – whether hidden or shown, metaphoric or poetic – is not ‘just’ movement, life. It encounters the identity discourse, for example, arising a dialogue about gender, origin, identity as the definition of ourselves, expression of our body, self-esteem. Hic et nunc, here and now.
