갤러리 정미소

Looking through the Glass
시간의 흔적만이 존재하는 폐허가 갤러리[정미소]로 대체된다. 폐허 '읽기'의 텍스트로만 존재하던 객석이 문화 '찾기'의 텍스트로 변형된다. 엘리스는 찾기를 갈망하는 거울을 바라본다. 사리진 2층 바닥을 거대한 유리로 대체한다. 천장도 아닌 바닥도 아닌 애매한 출구와 같은 엘리스의 유리를 통해서 바라보는 풍경을 상상한다. 그 풍경은 예술품들을 외부와 사회로 연결시키는 거대한 연결고리가 된다. 바닥과 천장의 경계에 설치한 연극무대의 커튼과 같이...

Gallery Jungmiso

Looking through the Glass

It, however, has long been a medium for reading. 'Alice' is looking at a mirror as if she could get something that she had been craving for ages. We put a huge glass instead of the existing floor. We visualize that what it would be like if we look through the glass. It is neither a ceiling nor a floor. It might look like a pit in 'Alice in Wonderland'. It is becoming a kind of linkage which conveys a host of artworks to the society and to the general public like a curtain in a theatre. Since the curtain is situated between the floor(stage) and the ceiling. Gallery Jungmiso was constructed as a space which is filled with people's hopes and dreams. We could get a haven for young artists by adding few tales to the gallery rather than eliminating every element to renovate it. Artist could build a network through the gallery as its space infuses with poetic aspects. The glass floor of the gallery is also the ceiling of the theatre's lobby. It represent a seed which is a network of hope. "We bring a glass floor like the mirror of Alice." It connects architecture and artwork. The Glass Floor is not only a surface but light, a screen which carrying images and media like a canvas.
