Introduction

HRD Fine Art is delighted to announce its first exhibition in the year 2020, titled gFramework,h presenting Hyunggwan Kim, Joonhyung Lee, and Soojong Jang of Korea, and Asahi Sugai of Japan. This international exhibition showcases painting, video work, and installation created by these four artists.

As the title suggests, this exhibition is themed around the notion of gframework,h which is essential to our viewing, perceiving, experiencing, and understanding of the world that surrounds us. From systems to laws and regulations, languages, physical principles, to common sense and stereotype, we have a lot of gframeworksh in human society. They are the windows through which we see the world, or the platforms on which we can build up and operate our lives.

However, these frameworks are often artificial and have the potential ability to change according to the change of time. When a framework changes, the world around us also begins to shift its shape and transforms into a new look.

Through their works, the four artists in this exhibition present the frameworks as something flexible that can be de/reconstructed, not as something absolutely fixated. Through these gwindowsh or on these gplatforms,h we can view and perceive the world in a totally different, fantastic way.
