Can a circle look like a square? Better yet, can a circle be both a circle and a square at the same time?
Celebrating the 2nd anniversary of Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong, ‘Ring: a Circle and a Square’ exhibition is the first brought overseas, presenting contemporary Korean art pieces to every Hongkongers. Starting from 5th February to 7th March, the exhibition will be displayed at Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong.
“A ring denotes a circle; to a boxer, however, it is a square.”
- So-yeon KIM, poet. One-Word Dictionary
The exhibition title “Ring: a Circle and a Square” comes from the poet’s words. Double meaning of “ring” is used to interpret the relationship between violence and everyday life.
The exhibition was selected by Arts Council Korea and it presented at Korea Insa Art Space last year from August to October. Four Korean contemporary artists Mooyoung KIM, KEEM Jiyoung, Euirock LEE, and Woosung LEE participated by the curation of Hee Young CHUNG. Artists expressed their thoughts with drawing, painting, video, photo and installation arts, evoking the psychological and social violence that has not been recognized in everyday life.
