The largest and most ambitious display of Gil Kuno's work to date, ON::OFF::ON offers the most extensive exhibition of not only the artist's works but also his creative processes.
On the Exhibition
Like the very chaos his works are centred on, Kuno's works are constantly undergoing evolution. From afar, Kuno's works may appear disjointed. However, up close, each piece carries a discernible sense of order within its disorder. Dynamic yet static, symmetric yet asymmetric, Kuno's works playfully alternates between diametric states to reveal an underlying order and pattern that lies beneath a sea of chaos.
Although these works stem from chaos, there is a powerful sense of comfort in the ways they digitize the patterns and movements of natural phenomena, such as waterfalls, waves, rain, and wind. Continually subverting our perceptions of reality, ON::OFF::ON offers a comprehensive display of Kuno's early to most recent endeavours.
In addition to his completed works, the artist will exhibit and produce various experimental works in Gil Lab, located in the B1F of the gallery. Giving visitors a chance to experience a part of the artist's process, works such as Pogophonic will be in production at the venue throughout the show.
Numerous collaborative live events, gallery talks, and artist workshops featuring guest speakers, artists, and prominent figures will also be held during the exhibition.
