ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
The series "ANTI ENTROPY" (2013, solo exhibition in New York) was inspired by the many traces of conte left unconsciously on the canvas when the artist's consciousness suddenly wandered off during production.
Countless lines softly and supplely dance and intersect on the canvas as if weaving out something that lies at the root of the unconscious.
In this solo exhibition (the first in eight years), Kim Jung presents a new series of works that shift from the "lines" of "ANTI ENTROPY" to "ONE, the LAND," which is composed of "dots.
A single "dot" is meaningless. Hundreds or thousands of "dots" are combined and overlap to form a single world.
This world reminds us of another world that we do not know.
Please enjoy the ethereal world of Kim Jung.
■ KIM JUN
Born in Seoul, Korea in 1971.
