Exhibition of new work from South Korean born artist Hyeyoung Maeng

About

Young’s new project, Fractured Affection, explores questions about your reaction when an object you hold dear is broken, or a strongly held belief betrays you. As Gilles Deleuze states, this might be the moment which leads you to encounter the real through involuntary violence. This series of paintings includes broken pieces of everyday life objects and continuously drying flowers, which express their own beauty and existence as they are.
 
These questions include the ethical issues regarding the treatment of Al robot-real dolls which could become an indispensable part of human life very soon. This project touches on the issue of the quasi human being, which can blur the boundary between human and non-human and the actual and virtual reality, and how they force us to dispel any pre-existing understandings and well-disposed presuppositions.
