This event has ended.

Member of contemporary and primitive fusing art group “Olta”, Takafumi Saito is a young artist currently drawing wide attention with his mix of common culture, temporary stages and over-adherence, brought to form in sculpture, installation, moving image and performance which places the body in danger. He brings to light a madness hidden in the contemporary world in his unanswerable projects.
On the other hand Byungseo Yoo is an artist engaged in research of visual logic, continuing to question the very meaning of contemporary art. Using wit and the bizarre as his weapon he creates simultaneously comical and sad, simple and complex ambivalences circling around collaboration, black comedy and real participation. This work has come to spread out into fields of poetry and theater, with his own dramatic group “Unfinished Project” moving between the space of the black box and white cube.
The two who first met in residency in Seoul now come together in what hints at being a dangerous chemical reaction.
