Bexley Heritage Trust seems to be acquiring a taste for Korean contemporary art. Last year they included Lee Hyunkoo’s work in a group show at Hall Place & Gardens, and Shin Meekyoung’s work in an exhibition at nearby Danson House.
This year, Kim Chang-kyum’s work Water Shadow Four Seasons will feature in a water-themed group show at Hall Place & Gardens. The work was shown at Hanmi Gallery’s space in Fitzrovia as well as the London Art Fair earlier this year, where Artlyst included it as one of the highlights of the Fair.
Watershed – art, play, and the politics of water
Hall Place & Gardens | Bourne Road | Bexley | Kent DA5 1PQ
Curated by Artwise
28 March – 6 September 2015
Hanmi Gallery is excited to announce that Korean artist Chang Kyum Kim’s work Water Shadow Four Seasons, 1 will feature in the group exhibition “Watershed” at Hall Place & Gardens, Bexley Heritage Trust, Kent.
Watershed is a new exhibition curated by Artwise, bringing together some 15 contemporary artists, which as well as Chang Kyum Kim will include Gavin Turk, Tania Kovats, Tatsuo Miyajima and Martin Parr who look at water in playful, conceptual, political and meditative ways.
Through photography, sculpture, video and installations, the exhibition celebrates the precious resource of water. The playful and restful nature of water is seen in Chang Kyum Kim’s meditative sculptural video projection, capturing the changing seasons in a projected pond; Massimo Vitali’s monumental landscape photograph shows the pleasure of being around water in nature.
In Noémie Goudal’s large scale photograph Cascade (waterfall), a plastic sheet replaces the pouring water; Tania Kovats’ glass and water sculpture Where Seas Meet is made with sea water from three places around the world where seas visibly meet; in David Buckland’s photographs of Ice Texts, words of warning are projected on to icebergs; Susan Derges captures the continuous movement of water by immersing photographic paper directly onto rivers or shorelines; and Martin Parr candidly documents the English at the seaside.
The exhibition will run from 28 March – 6 September 2015.
