The Donghwa Cultural Foundation cordially invites you to the Gallery Opening of “VOID” by Choong Sup Lim at the Korea Society Gallery in New York on May 5, 2015 at 6:00 PM. The exhibition runs from May 5 through June 19, 2015.

Choong Sup Lim builds bridges between different worlds. He combines sculpture, painting, and found objects to assert a harmony among contrasting concepts, such as the regimentation of modern civilization and a chaotic universe, urban and rural life, and the West and Korea. To Lim, the emphasis on distinctions conceals a deeper truth, which he seeks to uncover through an “emptying of self” and a patching of the “in-betweens.”

The installation artwork in this exhibition, Luna, And Her Thousand Reflections, blends light, video, architecture, and elements from Korea’s traditional weaving culture, and employs moon imagery to reference an important debate on the nature of principle and material force that occupied Confucian scholars in 16th century Chosun Korea. It was the title piece of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea’s 2012 retrospective of Lim’s work, and was modified by the artist to fit our space.
