PARK Hyun-ki: The Pioneer of Korean Video Art Park, Hyun-Ki: A Retrospective
GALLERY HYUNDAI is proud to present a retrospective exhibition of Hyun-Ki Park, who is considered one of the pioneering artists for his experimental work in media art. With video as a medium of expression, Park consistently questioned the essence of art and strived to bring his work closer to nature. The artist also engaged in conceptual art while his philosophy ranged from western minimalism to eastern philosophy. In commemoration of the 10th year of his passing away, the exhibition will survey his dynamic artistic career as the first video artist in Korea from the late 1970s. The works presented will include Park’s performance piece ‘Video Inclining Art’, previously shown at the 15th Sao Paulo Biennale, along with his single channel video works and installation pieces, some of which will be on view to the public for the first time. The exhibition aims to offer a rare opportunity to examine Park’s short-lived yet remarkably bold and successful artistic works.
