Situated Senses introduces two prominent contemporary Korean artists, Shan Hur and Soon-Hak Kwon, who focus on the theme of space, in particular site-specificity.
They present experimental form of artwork closely related to the specific feature of a space which is differentiated from the typical form of exhibit spaces. Hur and Kwon
have created a unique situation in a void space where its original use was far removed from the traditional meaning of exhibit spaces. Each artist shows the coexistence and collision of contradictory states in the spaces of daily life (Shan Hur) and the
interrelationship between a sense of distance and space originating from the psychology of visual experience (Soon-Hak Kwon). The works’ outgrowth was generated from a penetrating observation about the space during the preparation for the exhibition.
The Project seeks to find the ultimate meaning of existence or raison d’être, as a situational artwork and its concept derived from a consideration of the place. This project will continue to develop its experimental movement to arouse viewers’ latent senses
that situates within their inner world, and to touch viewers’ daily lives through active participations of their movement in the space, which is occupied by the artists’ existing senses.
