The gallery represents Korean artists working with diverse practices and interests. Both traditional and new media are scrutinised, as in JEONG Jeongju’s architectural installations concerned with space and light; AHN Sanghoon’s paintings exploring painting-ness expanding over canvas; and KU Myungseon’s pencil drawings that depict young girls absorbed in their own private narratives.
Contemporary life is at the core in others’ works, such as CHOI Sung Rok whose digital animation and video examine the advancement of digital technology in the present-day world; PARK Bona, who stages performances and projects that interrogate the various systems that govern our lives; and LEE Je whose paintings describe the urban lives and folks around her.
Also on the gallery roster are KOOK Dongwan, known for her drawings, sculptures, paintings, and books that engage with the realm of unconsciousness and Vicky Kim, who questions the role of images through her abstracted, geometric drawings and sculptural installations.
The gallery regularly organises solo and group exhibitions, while participating in domestic and international art fairs such as Art Cologne; Galleries Art Fair; the Korean International Art Fair; and Miami Art Basel. Gallery Chosun has also helped organise alternative art fairs such as Solo Show and The Gallerist.
Throughout the ecosystem, JooLee KANG has focused on ambiguous boundaries between humans and non-humans, an indistinguishable way of thinking between nature and civilization, and the self-reliance of whole organisms and inorganism.
AHN Sanghoon majored in Painting at Jung-Ang University, received his Akademiebrief and was a Meisterschueler at Kunstakademie Muenster. The artist constantly raises meaningless questions what painting is to him and experiments the nature of painting expanding into space.
'SOLO SHOW' is an art event that allows the audience to experience the role of artists, distributors, and consumers by coordinating loose and flexible alliance among art spaces and exhibition makers.
