The Island – A Case Study of a Collector’s Mind

The exhibition The Island
– A Case Study of a Collector’s Mind presents works by the Swedish-Korean artist Hyun-Jin Kwak. The Island refers to an old palace that Kwak discovered on a journey to Reggio Emilia in Italy in 2008. The palace seemed abandoned at first, but turned out to be inhibited by a man, Francesco, and his family. Francesco suffers from an inability to get rid of things. He has dragged all kinds of stuff inside, while refusing to get rid of all those things that others would consider nothing but junk.

slow second
slow second is a tribute to the camera and the creativity of the operator; the unique capacity of the tool which no paint brush, pencil or lump of clay can come across. Photography is time. Both inside and outside the black box. Slow seconds represents the tender moments we shape with time, light and shadow – a limbo where there is room for life and death to co-exist.
Slow second is a curated collection of works by various young and yet unestablished contemporary artists and photographers all currently represented on
