‘Systems of Capitalism’, 3 Feb – 16 Feb 2016
Our artist Ik-Ryeol Lee held his first solo exhibition of the year in Seoul and explored the theme ‘Systems of Capitalism’.
The first impression at the exhibition was ‘vitality’ and that sentiment overflowed the entire gallery. Urban scenes and car races became the main motifs of his work and perfectly reflected the current and equivocal relationship that exists between modern civilization and our species. His works show harmony and polarity between personality and community as well as sensitivity and rationality in a structured society. These opposing concepts enrich his works with more vibrant and dynamic dimensions.
