Junghae Park has been working on the theme of 'light' since 2017. To Park, seeing light is a process that evokes the object and its background. Her works recognize the change of light, and show an apparent will to describe the distance of an invisible landscape through 'looking' and 'perceiving' it in a variety of manners. Following the 2017 exhibition Xagenexx, which visualized the shape of the light observed in a particular space into the symbol X, her solo show at Whistle, Mellow Melody recognized the change of light explicitly according to the weather and connected it to its suggested melody and shape.Read More
