MMCA Gwacheon

“I am an artist pursuing change and stimulus. The change and stimulus are to express the environmental condition accepted from nature and social structures in combination with my sensitivity deeply hidden in the bottom of my thought.”

- Song Burnsoo -

Korean contemporary Artists Series Song Burnsoo is the first exhibition of MMCA Gwacheon in 2017. This exhibition is his 'mime' of half a century enacted through prints and tapestries.

Through the materials and genres, the artist delivers a soundless message on numbers of subjects he has experienced- environment, society, life and religion.

Anyone, who has grown roots of a bitter plant deep in one's heart, will find oneself engaged in the artist's silent warnings, monologues, outcries and consolations.
