Questioning the Origin of Artwork
In the domestic art market, individual collectors prefer paintings or sculptures to more contemporary art forms such as video and installation artworks.
Gim Hong-sok, an artist internationally known mostly for experimental installation artworks, seems determined to chase away such prejudiced attitudes.
Gim is currently holding his solo exhibition at a commercial gallery in southern Seoul, not a large museum or an alternate space which means that his 20 new works, including 12 photographs, four videos, and four objects, are not for just display but for sale.
