KIM Taiho: scape drawing    May 11 - Jun 24, 2012

For the title of Professor Kim, Taiho’s solo exhibition at Kumho Museum of Art and Hak¬gojae Gallery, “Scape Drawing” or “Concrete Abstraction” is chosen. At first, the terms like “Mindscape” or “Landscape” came up on the table, but there was a concern that those terms are already used in common for too many times before. To give some tension, I came up with an ambiguous new term by dropping “mind” and “land” from the two terms, and putting it with “drawing” instead: “scape drawing”. The intention is to view the artist’s whole work in an extended concept of drawing. “Concrete Abstraction” is also a new term that means the abstract work which concretely brings out the artist’s personal sentiment such as “ambigu¬ity”. I find the reasoning of this new term from “concrete poetry” in literature for having an equivalent meaning.
