Lee Subin, Born 1998
14:00 ~ 20:00
This exhibition takes the popular novel “Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982” (“82년생 김지영”) as a starting point from which to provide a new account of the everyday life of almost one generation later, which is born around the year 1998 and is now in their early to mid-20s. As the author Cho Nam-joo (조남주) strikingly showed, we can learn a lot from reflecting on our daily experiences in a society that is often hostile to the women who live in it. Thus, this exhibition – in the spirit of the novel – gathers different accounts of young artists reflecting on their everyday lives. The artworks show a variety of approaches to contemplating gender in contemporary Korean society, spanning from exploring the body to imagining fictive worlds.
