VIVIAN CHOI GALLERY is pleased to present Korea’s leading new media artist HAN Ho’s solo exhibition ‘Eternal Light’.
The exhibition will feature the works by Han Ho, a Korean new media artist and performer, who integrates light in his paintings. In ‘Eternal Light’, Han Ho explores the nature of human emotions, inner conflict, and hope. Using Korean traditional paper, hanji, Han Ho combines light in his traditional paintings to create a new form of art. He employs projected light in his art installations, and uses various materials to choreograph patterns of reflected light.
Han Ho has been using light as his medium for years. In 2015, Han Ho was invited to be Korea’s representative in the 56th Venice Biennale s special exhibition, ‘Personal Structures’.
He also participated in the exhibition of Palais de Tokyo in Paris, International Paper Art Biennale in Bulgaria, International Art Photo Festival Pingyao in China, and Empty area of Alien Aquazoo-Loebbecke Museum Ballhaus, Duesseldorf in Germany.
Han Ho has the basis of his works in personal introspection. Also, shape of memories and modern meditation intersect to approach this basis with a question about humanity. The directivity of his works has its root in light. The light is the substance regarded as the universe or celestial body. It is the messenger that delivers hope and the scale of these works brings an extremely intense feeling.
A media artist Hanho has been active presented in the world stage such as the Venice Biennale, the French Sire Biennale and the Brazil Trio Biennale and in numerous museum shows with this large scale installation works. Han Ho has brought new repercussions to the art world by incorporating media technology into paintings and creating a formative language called New Media Art.
