This event has ended.
Artist’s statement: One day in January 2014, I was opening the door to my house when in that moment, all of a sudden, I was taken by surprise by a dove flying away. Unable to forget that scene, I thought - I will make this into a picture…
From this seemingly trivial episode - “not just an impulse, but an impulsive impulse” - began O Jun’s creation of ‘A dove flying away, I am surprised’. In two years, it has instigated a series of over 100 works made with a wide range of forms, techniques and materials including drawings, watercolors, paintings, and prints. All of these will be shown together in this exhibition, together with new works.
