A Queen’s Gaze : Song Kwangchan

The world is composed by Images and stories. There are stories imagined through images and images contained stories. It is not easy to decide how images merge into its stories. Yet the photographer just hope for communicating with audiences, rather than working himself one-way progress through ‘show – view’ activities. This is why the title of the exhibition is named as ‘Facing (each other)’. There are different trees standing on an old palace, downtown, and steel mill which somehow look same. Concerning as a main subject in the artwork, or not, the trees standing on different spot are expressed within one color. The green leaves are reborn as pink images through infrared photographed filter. It contains many stories; palaces stayed there for a long time, cities which have been changing its role as living foundation for people, or industrial zones filled with hard worker’s sweat. Space that have been passing all the while is now attracting to the eye. The difference of viewpoint has bring on emotion variation. Once seeing differently and newly, then the world was colorfully shining. His work field will be extending. Once images and stories are existed, the artist is looking forward to facing you through his viewfinder.

세상은 이미지와 이야기로 구성된다. 우리가 귀로 듣는 이야기는 이미지로 상상되고, 눈으로 보는 이미지엔 각각의 이야기가 담겨 흐른다. 작가가 찍은 사진 이미지에 어떤 이야기가 어떻게 담길 지는 한 가지로 단정할 수 없을 것이다. 다만 작가는바란다. ‘보여주다*보다’의 단방향 작업이아닌, 작가와 관람객 사이 쌍방향 소통이이루어지기를. 그래서 전시명은 〈마주보다〉이다. 고궁의 나무와 도심의 나무와 제철소의 나무는 같은 듯 서로 다르다. 주인공인 듯주인공 아닌 나무들이 각각의 장소에서 하나의 색으로 피어오른다. 오랜 시간 자리 를 지켜온 고궁과, 삶의 터전으로 변화해온 도시와, 노동의 땀방울이 얽힌 공업지 대에서의 서로 다른 이야기들을 품고서. 적외선 필터를 통해 초록의 나무가 분홍빛 으로 재탄생되었다. 무심히 지나치던 공간이 색다르게눈길을 잡아끈다. 시각의 차 이는 느낌의 변화를 불러왔다. 다르게 보고 낯설게 보니 세상은 다채롭게 빛나고 있었다. 작업의 영역은 계속 확장될 것이다. 이미지가 있고 이야기가 있는 곳이라면 작가는 어디든 뷰파인더를 통해 세상과, 그리고 당신과 마주 볼 준비가 되어 있다.

โลกประกอบไปด้วยรูปภาพและเรื่องราวมีเรื่องราวจินตนาการมากมายผ่านทางรูปภาพและภาพที่เก็บเรื่องราว มันไม่ง่ายเลยที่จะตัดสินใจได้ว่ารูปภาพเหล่านั้นจะผสานเข้ากับเรื่องราวของมันอย่างไร ช่างภาพหวังเพียงแค่ต้องการที่จะสื่อสารกับผู้ชม แทนที่จะเป็นการทำงานด้วยตัวเองแบบก้าวหน้าทางเดียวผ่านกิจกรรม ‘แสดงมุมมอง’ นี่คือเหตุผลว่าทำไมงานแสดงนี้ถึงได้ชื่อว่า “การพบกัน” มีต้นไม้ที่แตกต่างกันยืนอยู่บนวังเก่า ๆ ใจกลางเมืองและโรงงานเหล็กซึ่งมีลักษณะคล้ายกัน เกี่ยวกับการเป็นหัวข้อหลักในงานศิลปะหรือไม่ ต้นไม้ที่ยืนอยู่บนจุดที่แตกต่างกันถูกแสดงด้วยสีเพียงสีเดียว ใบสีเขียวที่เกิดขึ้นใหม่เป็นภาพสีชมพูผ่านตัวกรองภาพถ่ายอินฟราเรด มันจุไปด้วยเรื่องราวมากมาย พระราชวังที่อยู่ที่นั่นเป็นเวลานาน เมืองที่เปลี่ยนบทบาทไปเป็นที่อยู่อาศัยสำหรับผู้คนหรือเขตอุตสาหกรรมที่เต็มไปด้วยเหงื่อของคนที่ทำงานอย่างหนัก พื้นที่ทั้งหมดที่ผ่านไปในขณะที่กำลังเป็นที่ดึงดูดสนใจสายตาในตอนนี้ความแตกต่างของมุมมองได้นำไปสู่การเปลี่ยนแปลงทางอารมณ์ ครั้งหนึ่งเห็นแตกต่างกันและครั้งใหม่ ต่อมาโลกก็มีสีสันที่สุกใส เขตการทำงานของเขาจะถูกขยายออกไปเรื่อย ๆ เมื่อครั้งหนึ่งที่ภาพและเรื่องราวนั้นมีอยู่ ศิลปินก็กำลังรอคอยที่จะเผชิญหน้ากับคุณผ่านเลนส์ของเขา
