Ever since I can remember I have been intrigued with contemporary photography and fascinated by the possibility of stories being captured in a single image. That explains not only why the European Month of Photography, happening right now in Berlin, is my favorite time of the year but also why I’m so excited to share with you an upcoming exhibition entitled Well-Constructed. Embracing the current burst of South Korean culture and photography, the gallery space AANDO FINE ART in Mitte is bringing 5 internationally renowned Korean photographers to Berlin.
The group show investigates ideas of construction and perception manipulation whereby artists stage scenes of reality to create a conceptual narrative on their own. Expanding the possibilities of photography, artists Hongchun Park, KDK, Osang Gwon, Hyungmin Moon and Seungwoo Back are all on board, seeking to describe human experience and question primary visual perception. Among my favorites is Osang Gwon, who composes three-dimensional sculptures out of multiple two-dimensional images. Stunning, aren’t they? Take a minute to look through their works after the jump, before saving the vernissage date (November 07, 2014) in your calendar.
Join the vernissage at Tucholskystr. 35 on November 7, 2014, at 18h, and be amazed by how their photography goes beyond the power of the images that are captured.
