Whistle was established in 2017 in Itaewon district, a cultural hub in Seoul, with an emphasis on sensory experiences of art. Collaborating with curators, artists, and other galleries, Whistle promotes contemporary artists from Korea and around the world, while creating a versatile space for exhibiting contemporary art.
Whistle’s gallery roster focuses on emerging and mid-career artists based in Seoul, including Jiieh G Hur, who works on sculptures, sound, and installations engaging elements and emotions of bodily memories from a momentary experience; Gi Young Kim, known for her works on square pieces of paper that describe the many different ways in which human emotional changes could exist; and Min ha Park, who records memories of particular moments and sentiments on canvas, dividing them into units of light, colour, and form in specific conditions of landscapes.Read More
The gallery also represents international artists working across different media, among them Seung Yul Oh, who confronts our conceptions about space and sensory experiences through his large-scale PVC installations and fibreglass sculptures that incorporate humour; Teppei Kaneuji, who works with found images drawn from Japanese pop culture and daily life to create sculptures loaded with colour and individual parts; and Noncheleee who, performing as a musician, observes his audience and portrays human encounter with music as found in life.
Whistle regularly organises solo and group exhibitions while collaborating with fellow contemporary galleries to show contemporary art through multiple perspectives.
The gallery participates in selected art fairs such as Art Busan and Taipei Dangdai, as well as alternative art fairs including The Gallerist and Solo Show in Seoul.
