The curator Ms. Chiara Valci Mazzara together with Mr. Kim Do Hyeong on behalf of Daegu Photo Biennale and Daegu Arts Center is pleased to invite you to attend the opening of Daegu Photo Biennale Special Exhibition 2019 for the first time taking place in Berlin.
The main aim of the show is to present a special exhibition developed to initiate the encounter between Korean contemporary art and European contemporary art through the medium of photography and in the frame of Daegu Photo Biennale. The Daegu Photo Biennale Special Exhibition will function as first step in the city of Berlin, displaying one artist based in Korea, one artist based in Daegu city, Korea and two artists based in Berlin, Germany.
Through the selection of artists and their specific works, the exhibition explores the differences and similarities between the artists from different geographical locations and their various systems of references, in order to presents a cohesive, yet multi-faced show.
The theme of the show is the idea of MorphO (so written, where Morph-is the ever-changing pattern of the matter -- figuratively and literally -- and the O is an attempt to contain it and embrace it at the same time: like a circle). MorphO, not metamorphosis neither morphosis, stands for the root of the word: 'morph' as for its etymological meaning. MorphO refers to the shape, the change, the form of the object, the matter, its content, its form. The friction created by an ever-changing shape and the ever-changing pieces in reference to each other creates a dialogue based on a new system of references. The aesthetics are different yet similar, based on a common intensity of the photographic investigation.
The portable pressure is the pressure of the object, the physical weight and, figuratively, the one given by its past and its new content, its story and new life when translated in photographic works or in sculptural volumes.
The artists: Ricarda Roggan, Henrik Strömberg, Jung Sung Tae, Woo Chang Won.
A catalogue produced and published on the occasion of the exhibition will be available to the guests.
The exhibition will open with a vernissage Friday, August 23rd 2019, 18.00 and will be running for two weeks, closing with a special finissage Saturday September 7th, 2019, 18.00.
Created with the kind support of the Korean Cultural Center in Berlin.
