A Device - Back to the Moment poster

Mokspace is pleased to present the group exhibition “A device: Back to the moment”. This exhibition features the work of 6 Korean artists: Myungnam An, Seungpyo Hong, Jiho Won, Rae Koo, Dongyoon Kim and Hyeyoung Ku.

In order to draw a common emotion in their psychological state, the artist’s work acts as a device. It unlocks the memories and recollections of the audience using the human senses in a synesthetic manner. Therefore what results is an experience that can be appreciated by everyone on an individual and personal level.

‘A Device’ consists of sculptures, photos, paintings, performances, etchings and ceramic work giving the exhibition a distinctive variety. It provides the audience with a way to look back at various stories from memories, enabling them to admire the lost moment once again.

The exhibition tries to create a situation where the audience is reminded of something in the past, that does not usually come to mind, by connecting to memories that are hard to recall or related to nothing in particular.

‘A Device’ is particularly interesting because the art included in the exhibition bears the “madeleine effect”, a concept that Marcel Proust(1872-1922) coined, in which cues encountered in art evoke recollections of the past without conscious effort.
