I work in photography and book arts in Korea.
The book is always the object for me to examine and gives me inspiration. I feel the warmth that I hardly feel from the digital media in the paper that is the basic element of books. And the two-dimensional structure of the book extends to three-dimensional space as well. If the imagination is added to this space, the space can be infinite beyond time. Looking back my working journey through the infinite space, 'Working on Books' has always been self-healing time. During journey, I met my father, swam with fish, introspected anxious self and consoled me. Even though I make the book in the present, I communicate with the past and I look at my artworks, I experience myself in another time and space. This might be the reason there are so many overlapping images in pages from my book arts. Now the book becomes the object with enough aura by itself to me.
The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
