“My Place” presents works by five artists from Busan(South Korea), each bringing their individual artistic responses to last year’s trip to Germany, which was supported by Busan Cultural Foundation. They all come from different disciplines with diverse interests, but here they specifically focus on the ideas stimulated after visiting Gängeviertel in Hamburg. Gangeviertel is a place where local artists have taken action to protect the city’s historical residential quarter from redevelopment, by transforming the space for various creative activities for the whole community. In other words, the space represents a stance against the destruction of diverse local values by commercialism.
 What these Busan artists witnessed in the inner city of Hamburg is no longer a distant story. South Korea’s once desirable rapid development and industrialization now faces inescapable adverse side effects on Koreans, both physically and psychologically. The reaction of artists against the so called ‘gentrification’ in Korean cities has also started in Busan recently. Artists in this situation, face a dilemma. Because their action to rejuvenate an area, in the face of redevelopment, often results in increased popularity and consequent rise in property values and rents. Making these areas unaffordable for struggling artists, this pernicious circle ultimately driving these artists and poorer residents out of the area.
 Visiting Gängeviertel has triggered continuous discussions and challenges for these artists. Causing them to re-evaluate their own positions and perspectives of the rapidly shifting city and society to which they belong. In this context, what can be the’ role and position of the artist? More importantly, how can they continue ‘being artists’? ‘My place’ is open to many interpretations. In this exhibition the following artists have created works based on personal reflections on their trip to Germany, after returning to Busan.

<The Last Man> group exhibition organized by Art Circus, James Freeman Gallery in London.
 
4th July – 2nd August 2014
Opening Reception:Thursday 3 July, 6:30 – 8:30
The Art Circus is very pleased to announce our first curated group show in collaboration with the James freeman Gallery. Artists on show will include Vasilis Avramidis, Christopher Gee, Miguel Laino, Hyunjeong Lim, Mackie, Tom Shedden, Eleanor Watson.
Change is one of the few certainties in life. After death and taxes, the only thing we can be sure of is that nothing stays the same. As such, it begs the question: what happens when we’re no longer around?
Taking Mary Shelley’s apocalyptic novel The Last Man (1826) as its inspiration, this show explores the mysterious absence of humankind from the spaces they once inhabited. The ecological concerns of Shelley’s novel bring to mind: if mankind disappeared, would the natural world be free to reclaim what belonged to it? Visitors thereby get to take the place of Verney, The Last Man, in becoming the sole observer of an eerie lost world.

Seven painters come together to create this atmospheric exhibition. The unnerving images of Christopher Gee and Miguel Laino create a haunting, ominous presence, as if even before the disappearance there were clues, portents and signs. The paintings of Eleanor Watson and Mackie depict abandoned landscapes and structures like solitary markers, with empty rooms seen through external walls creating a sense of dereliction. In Vasilis Avramidis’s luscious works, green mossy hills emerge in the black of night from a subterraneous realm and morph into arms, fingers and heads. The Bosch-like theme is continued in Hyunjeong Lim’s drawings of twisted landscapes that depict a contemporary Golgotha through a cacophony of comic-book images. It is left to Tom Shedden’s paintings of an Elysian future to suggest a counterbalance of harmony with the new elements.

“My Place” presents works by five artists from Busan(South Korea), each bringing their individual artistic responses to last year’s trip to Germany, which was supported by Busan Cultural Foundation. They all come from different disciplines with diverse interests, but here they specifically focus on the ideas stimulated after visiting Gängeviertel in Hamburg. Gangeviertel is a place where local artists have taken action to protect the city’s historical residential quarter from redevelopment, by transforming the space for various creative activities for the whole community. In other words, the space represents a stance against the destruction of diverse local values by commercialism.
 What these Busan artists witnessed in the inner city of Hamburg is no longer a distant story. South Korea’s once desirable rapid development and industrialization now faces inescapable adverse side effects on Koreans, both physically and psychologically. The reaction of artists against the so called ‘gentrification’ in Korean cities has also started in Busan recently. Artists in this situation, face a dilemma. Because their action to rejuvenate an area, in the face of redevelopment, often results in increased popularity and consequent rise in property values and rents. Making these areas unaffordable for struggling artists, this pernicious circle ultimately driving these artists and poorer residents out of the area.
 Visiting Gängeviertel has triggered continuous discussions and challenges for these artists. Causing them to re-evaluate their own positions and perspectives of the rapidly shifting city and society to which they belong. In this context, what can be the’ role and position of the artist? More importantly, how can they continue ‘being artists’? ‘My place’ is open to many interpretations. In this exhibition the following artists have created works based on personal reflections on their trip to Germany, after returning to Busan.

&lt;The Last Man&gt; group exhibition organized by Art Circus, James Freeman Gallery in London.
 
4th July – 2nd August 2014
Opening Reception:Thursday 3 July, 6:30 – 8:30
The Art Circus is very pleased to announce our first curated group show in collaboration with the James freeman Gallery. Artists on show will include Vasilis Avramidis, Christopher Gee, Miguel Laino, Hyunjeong Lim, Mackie, Tom Shedden, Eleanor Watson.
Change is one of the few certainties in life. After death and taxes, the only thing we can be sure of is that nothing stays the same. As such, it begs the question: what happens when we’re no longer around?
Taking Mary Shelley’s apocalyptic novel The Last Man (1826) as its inspiration, this show explores the mysterious absence of humankind from the spaces they once inhabited. The ecological concerns of Shelley’s novel bring to mind: if mankind disappeared, would the natural world be free to reclaim what belonged to it?

Seven painters come together to create this atmospheric exhibition. The unnerving images of Christopher Gee and Miguel Laino create a haunting, ominous presence, as if even before the disappearance there were clues, portents and signs. The paintings of Eleanor Watson and Mackie depict abandoned landscapes and structures like solitary markers, with empty rooms seen through external walls creating a sense of dereliction. In Vasilis Avramidis’s luscious works, green mossy hills emerge in the black of night from a subterraneous realm and morph into arms, fingers and heads. The Bosch-like theme is continued in Hyunjeong Lim’s drawings of twisted landscapes that depict a contemporary Golgotha through a cacophony of comic-book images. It is left to Tom Shedden’s paintings of an Elysian future to suggest a counterbalance of harmony with the new elements.

< Statement >

The primary focus in my art practice has been that of evoking, through a visual medium, the sense of fantasy— which is naturally inherent in human beings. The method I have used for expressing this idea has been that of producing figurative drawings on canvas and paper. My main reason for this choice is my interest in the notion of unconscious memories and in creating imaginary worlds. Thus, the most prominent features of my work are using a type of intuitive drawing(such as doodling) and creating highly imaginative drawn figures and landscapes.

I found inspirational examples from works by Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, George Condo and Paul Noble as they depicted biomorphic shapes of creatures which show primitive, sometimes grotesque yet visually arresting images and sensibilities to the viewer. Likewise, through experimenting in this way of drawing, I can express a mindscpae consisting of various creatures with stories that are suggestive to the world of fantasy.

Since starting the MA Fine Art course in CSM, 2011, my direction of practice has also become a response to the long history of illustrated works from the ancient world to those of contemporary artists. On one hand, I am intrigued with ancient artifacts that use fantasy elements connected with the account of historical events around the world. For example, I regard Greek, Indian, Egyptian, Assyrian carvings and sculptures in the British Museum as an important reference to my personal themes. Historic figures in these works are often intricately intertwined, thus making the works seem one biomorphic organic object — which has a powerful visual impact on me.

In addition, from the research of renaissance landscape drawings by old masters such as Pieter Bruegel, I have started to experiment with using charcoal and a wash of water or acrylic color in order to create an old appearance of the surface on paper. This process leads me to the subject matter of landscape which can describe an artist’s inner view. As a consequence, I see the possibility of finding connections in previous art history with my own contemporary practice, in that I would like to produce a fantasy based surrealistic view of the real world by combining historical painting traditions with my own inner imaginary world.
