갤러리 정미소

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...

A devastated place has changed to 'Gallery Jungmiso'. Head office of a monthly music magazine, Gaeksuk(auditorium) has transformed into a 'symbolic aspect of culture(finding)'.

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 theater. 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.
