LB Contemporary is pleased to announce an exhibition of "Push a Button" by Eunmi Kim from December 28, 2022 to February 4, 2023. In this exhibition, the artist shows how the real world can be transformed and reconstructed into another form and exist in numerous forms through the artist's unique way of working. Through the works that present a new world dismantle the fixed system of meaning of the existing object and recontextualize, we hope to empathize with viewers who aspire to change in a complex reality.
It creates a desire to build a world where one's own rules work in a world where there are more things one can't do than one can. The artist tries to show the world of alternatives she dreams of through her creative artworks. Eunmi Kim's work also shows the world she aspired to as a space where differences between each other are preferred and interacted with, not in a fixed form. The artist builds a world free from a set rule by executing ‘form-mapping’ that reformats the existing space by simulating it according to a specific format designated by the artist. The newly reconstructed world contains contemporary cultural characteristics, but exists in various shapes that have been transformed.
The series of "Push a Button" is arranged in a form in which the individual buildings are floating in space and connected like a network in which individuals construct the entire space through a passage that connects individual objects. The space is not arranged based on one central point, but it is arranged in a decentralized structure distributed throughout the square frame of the canvas. As the number of objects, that is, the number of connection points increases, it looks similar to a network space that expands endlessly. The smaller square canvas embedded in the middle of the whole canvas is a virtual button that is on and off to simulate buildings moving as well as suggests the chances for imagining the movements of machines.
