Chabah Yelmani Gallery is pleased to announce he opening on June 11th, of Silent Memory, Yumi Chung’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

About

‘‘Silent Memory’, a solo exhibition by Yumi Chung, consists of recent drawings and paintings. Chung’s work examines the boundary between the inside and the outside, with the emphasis on semitransparency to explore the language of space. In this exhibition, various memories, which were inspired by the spatial relations that she encountered on her walks through Reykjavík in Iceland during residency, resurface in the paintings after having undergone a process of recomposition. The colours of the paintings reflect the city’s natural environment. Following a similar theme, Chung’s drawings focus on the features of semi-basement windows in Reykjavik, closing the distance between the inside and outside into a claustrophobic space.

 

“I found something and held my breath. I could not hear any sound on the street. The world around me dissolved into that something at that moment.“ – Yumi Chung (January 2015)
