What are the hidden stories and thoughts of those characters who conceal their faces with their hands?
Could they be reminiscing about the rain at nightfall or breathtaking glimmers of fireworks as every situation narrates emotional moments of love;
a heroic villain or a youngster caught between imagination and reality may be, each one has their own unique fantasies.
Let's transcend beyond the external sense and break free from the limitation of the physical world to see the universe within our hearts.
Rich Art is very honored to host the Korean artist, Jo Gyuhun's first solo exhibition in Taiwan. The exhibition will feature Jo Gyuhun's unique creative vocabulary through various art mediums, including two-dimensional paintings, three-dimensional sculptures, and video installations. From the children's perspective, the world is like a playground for hide-and-seek. Through their covered eyes, what do they see? What do they intend to express? Every artwork presents a distinctive character's incomplete face, inviting viewers to use their imagination to discover the simple joy hidden within. This creates the potential for various narrative developments based on different viewers' viewpoints and emotions, akin to an endlessly engaging guessing game. The exhibition is from September 23rd to December 2nd. We sincerely invite everyone to come and join us on this wondrous journey.
