Contemporary Art in Korean Tradition

Suki Seokyeong Kang’s practice traverses painting, sculpture, installation, as well as video and performance to explore the interplay between the individual and the collective. By developing an artistic vocabulary that draws from the rich heritage of Korean painting, poetry and dance, Kang’s oeuvre examines the durability of traditions and expands their significance to contemporary art.

The catalogue, accompanying her solo exhibition Willow Drum Oriole at Leeum Museum of Art, proposes to read Kang’s practice through a range of varying discourses, such as the status of traditional Korean painting in contemporary art, feminism, and the narratives of the Western avant-garde. Taking the artist’s foundational painting practice as a point of departure, the catalogue features a new body of work and charts the development of Kang’s artistic language.
