Jung Hyeryun Solo Exhibition US2-Live Like Water
Friday, March 10, 2023 – Thursday, March 23, 2023
Hours: 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. *Closed on Mondays
JHR has been creating material/non-material visual works with a special interest in the organic relationship that humans develop with their environment.
<US2-Live Like Water> is experimental research designed to remind us of the current situation facing humans and nature by visualizing the seriousness of water pollution through actual data and virtual media. The title of the work was inspired by Lao-tzu’s theory ‘Live Like Water’, which emphasizes the need to respect the inherent properties of nature and humans and is intended to explore the essential nature of water beyond its superficial, material reality.
The video image shows that the images created by pollution figures repeat combination and disassembly on the virtual web like a living organism, finding new ways to survive through self-imposed rules and meanings.
The work also implies that we have crossed the threshold of the hitherto unknown worlds such as the Anthropocene and Chthulucene.
