Resembling Resemblances

27 Oct 2017 — 17:00 till 19:00 hrs

Resembling Resemblances is a project by Hyungi Park that explores the relation between painting and photographic reproduction.

It is very common to meet works of art through digital or printed media, however, those reproductions often fail to properly represent the original works. According to the French art theorist Andre Malraux in The Voice of Silence, the qualities of pieces of art are deprived of their identity when they are reproduced in photographs.

As a painter, Park considers how the properties of a painting are transformed when a piece is photographed and reproduced in printed or digital forms. In Resembling Resemblances she experiments with this relationship via a showcase of her paintings and their digitalised reproductions.
