Photographer Hwang, Sung-won’s <Winter, Flower> is something that you feel so mystical and glamorous. Her 5th solo exhibition is a hybrid and combined new things through various materials. Therefore, she completed 18 pieces of work parade to show the absorption of lights and shadows.
What is your intention or concept for this exhibition <Winter, Flower>?
JW Art Gallery wanted to show the exhibition differently. When the art director, Anouk talked about the plan, I quite liked it. When I even read her words to describe the whole concept, it is like she saw through my mind, and then, suddenly I got emotional. Especially, I loved that part of it, “You, your hand, steps, and the fate to go forward to bloom at the end. You make me feel beautiful and overwhelm me like that.” My life is hard like that phrase but, it is not always like that on other hand. So, I was trying to express my willingness that would make things pure and elegant out of harsh environments around me as a destiny. Thus, I am planning to show artworks that have more lights.
What do we exactly see, to be specific?
It would be divided into 2 sectors, which are flower and winter, respectively. There is something sparkling objects such as glass vases and trees that move by the wind. I wanted to say it is not only us going through this stupid and crazy time at this moment but also our nature that should be with us. In another way to speak of, I think the city and nature have to be supporting and helping each other as one since we are not separated. And, I tried to show the meaning of this exhibition.
