In 2016 a small asteroid ‘2016 HO3’ was discovered in an orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth. "In effect this small asteroid is caught in a little dance with earth" said Paul Chodas, NASA-JPL. This 'second moon' is small and fast, having an irregular rhythm and orbit, and is invisible from the earth. www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/
During March, Back Lane West is pleased to be hosting three Korean artists, Nayoung Kim, Yesul Kim and Junyoung Park. Over the month they have been researching two areas of interest, the very particular landscape of the China clay workings around St Austell and the discovery last year of a ‘second moon’, a small asteroid in an orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth. https://littledancewithearth.tumblr.com/ http://backlanewest.org/
We would like to invite you to join the artists on Wed 29th March from 6pm to see the outcomes of their research and celebrate the 2nd moon with cocktails and nibbles.
Nayoung Kim is fascinated by raw material, each individual’s energy, the elegance of chance. Her works are gentle, suspended and refined moments; architectural pieces with subtle clues of human activities, direction and languages. Paying close attention to the ecosystem in which she moves, she precisely creates the situations which question her ways of doing, and educates an open-work community.
Junyoung Park has been working on the boundary of personal and social myths through literature and musical medium by giving different characters that touch specific issues to a hypothetical person named 'Gay Gonjo'. However, Gay Gonjo has his own history beyond the artist, and he began to expand his relationships. From that point, Park rethinks the relationship between artists, names, and characters. Currently he is working on names that do not have character traits such as Bak ail, gb, erika cox.
Yesul Kim is working as an artist and graphic designer running the graphic design studio Giggal. She is interested in examining the relationships between people, society and environment and exploring these relationships through audience participation. Recently she worked on the Artist Survival Project through which she questioned, in a ironic way, how artists should position themselves in an art system and who are those best qualified to be an artist. firstname.lastname@example.org www.kimyesul.com www.dancegiggal.com
