The 2016 Spring Open Call Exhibition from 19 April to 28 May 2016
The Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK) presents Hoyeon Kang’s first solo show in the UK entitled How to Shout YAHOO! Kang is the winner of the KCCUK’s 2016 Spring Open Call Exhibition, and his proposal was chosen from over 135 applicants by three jurors: Mark Rappolt (Editor-in-Chief, Art Review), Katrina Schwarz (Curator, British Council) and Sung Hwan Kim (artist).
Hoyeon Kang will show a series of interactive installation works which explore the nature of a synesthetic experience by highlighting various senses (sight, hearing, smell and touch) that can be stimulated from everyday objects such as a fan, TV, mobile phone, humidifier and fabric softer. By transforming everyday objects into multisensory stimuli that evoke memories as Proust’s madeleine cakes once did, the artist asks the following question: how do our everyday synesthetic experiences stimulate memories and produce knowledge about the world we live in?
