Rēad Entwinement


3 - 7 June 2024
Mezzanine (2nd floor, Dyson Building, RCA Battersea, SW11 4AY)

Artists: Seongeun Lee, Bo Gyeom Kim
Curator: Yeneul Kim

"Rēad Entwinment" is a duo exhibition featuring a collaboration between textile artist Seongeun Lee and product designer Bo Gyeom Kim. The exhibition showcases six works in total: two by Seongeun Lee, two by Bo Gyeom Kim, and two collaborative pieces, with the latter being presented for the first time in this exhibition.

Rēad is from Old English, which is the etymological root of "Red". As the first colour to be textualised, red exists in numerous and diverse forms in our lives. It evokes blood, symbolising life and death, beginnings and endings, and carries dual meanings. It signifies prohibition, stop, strong warnings, danger, and urgency. Furthermore, it represents sacrifice, risk, courage, and fire, symbolising both warmth and passion. Culturally, it holds various other meanings as well.

The colour red, in itself, encompasses a vast array of texts and signs. This diversity indicates that it is not merely a binary opposition; it is difficult to define and categorise with a single term. Therefore, how diverse is our approach and interpretation when we view artworks? As you explore the works of the two artists, who come from distinct yet complementary backgrounds of textiles and product design, recommend considering how the objects of our lives can be defined through this lens.
