“Taejoong Kim: Bloomed” Opening & Performance 6/28 7 – 9 PM
June 28 @ 7:00 PM - July 25 @ 7:00 PMfree
Space 776 is delighted to present a solo exhibition of photographs and videos by Seoul-born, New York-based artist Taejoong Kim. At his first solo show in New York, he is showing his latest series of work, The Rose of Sharon, Bloomed, an interactive performance which captures the movement and lights during a popular children’s game called “Red Light, Green Light,” often played in many countries with different names.
The main theme of his work for the last 5 years is long exposure photograph. His photographs taken with a long exposure from 30 seconds to 30 minutes and videos taken at the same time are the most important materials for his work. In the same frame, hundreds of pieces of light mixed in order and direction cause audiences to clash with old beliefs and new experiences. The vivid rules created by the artist and the ambiguity caused by the movements of the human are violently encountered in the photographs and installations of the same source.
