Exhibition Concept

examines and questions new aspects of city development. City has the rapidly accelerating pace of exchange in recent years influenced cross-cultural developments. City has been expanded from social norms and its significances. It is clear that city did not grow naturally through the ages but develop relatively short time frame. As its expansion, our society has different standard. From these, concept, my solo exhibitions, both (2016) and (2016) show movements in contemporary urban societies through the use of city structures such as Korea national flag ornament, metal roof fan, and windsock. This interest is based on personal explorations of cultural and regional studies. In the , I will show my concern with irony metaphor for road signs.
