Pause & Gesture

 

.....Ahn reveals his own artistic ideology by re-enacting Bas Jan Ader's <I'm too sad to tell you, 1971> in <43 90, 2015>, works created under repeated and repetitive motions, reflecting on the fate of the artist in which he must worry constantly and endure painful times. In his new works Ahn presents gestures containing the inner -self of the artist quietly expressed without the need for extemporary expression by brightening the dark space and placing himself in the space.....
