Galerie Bart presents ‘Everyday’, a solo exhibition by Jisan Ahn (1979, KR).
Jisan works with images from the media, which he first incorporates into drawings, collages and miniature arrangements, before applying the paint to the canvas based on these preliminary studies. With his paintings he wants to question the factuality of media images and he plays with the idea of reality versus the virtual world. He also draws on his own memory and emotions evoked by these situations and events. Because he had had a carefree childhood, Jisan has always been searching for the feeling of discomfort in himself. When he finds this emotion, he translates it into images with the aim to evoke this discomfort from the viewer as well. In the exhibition Jisan will show new work where the everyday and repetitive will be the subject. Human figures are often absent, the emptiness of space challenges you without mercy.
