COLD CELL

About

This exhibition will examine the relationship of the individual pitted against the hierarchies and social structures of our current society. The exhibition will take place in the prison cells and ground floor gallery space of a now disused police station. Like the title already suggests, the meaning of the show is derived from the harsh interrogation techniques that have been officially authorized since the dramatic events of September 11, 2001. The Cold Cell is one of those six interrogation techniques; the prisoner is left to stand naked in a cell kept at 50 à‹Š¡F. The exhibition aims to address the work of Korean artists that have in some respect worked in themes that deal with isolation, estrangement and global conflict. The exhibition will showcase works by eight Korean artists who live and work in Seoul, London, and Berlin.
