<Art Like Salt> 2022 Open Call for Residency Artists


<Art Like Salt> 2022 Open Call for Residency Artists

Taepyung Salt Farm X LAMPLAB seeks artists to submit entries for the juried exhibition, ‘Art Like Salt.’ The winners will be chosen to participate in a residency program in Shinan, designated a ‘Slow City’, in South Jeolla Province, South Korea, with the opportunity to create work in any of the following formats; photography, video, installation, sculpture, or sound with the theme of ‘Dear Friend'.

2022 Theme :  The Open World, and Beyond

Anxiety about the future is the fate of human beings who do not know their own end. If we could know exactly how much time was given, humans would be able to live a very different life. The fate of living in a limited time reinforces the aspiration and challenge for permanence. All human activities for material and practical as well as nonmaterial and spiritual values are not solely for the time in this world we live in now.

The new media environment discloses that what’s right in front of you is not your whole world. Digital footprints that never disappear, virtual reality that continues to expand, and media environments that provide a more intense experience than reality have already come into our lives. We may have already got what we want. The ability to transcend time and space may be our blessing and disaster as we live in an unprepared world that Jose Saramago has shown us in 『Death with interruptions』.

What has happened over the past decade or so at the salt farm on a remote island by the sea is a testament to the technology-driven ‘the way the world expands.’ A bridge was built between the mainland and the island, and an airport was built within a 30-minute drive away, increasing convenient access to and from facilities. It will take only a second to find useful real information before setting foot in the island. People already know about the white salt farm, the red sunset, the milky sky, and the

waterway that winds through the tidal flats, just as people think of Van Gogh's yellow sunflower fields before going to Provence in France. But art and artists exist for what we don't know yet.

For the past three years, artists from all over the world have submitted applications to participate in the <Art Like Salt> residency program, and the selected artists continued their lives and work for three months in the island. It was an exciting challenge for both artists and administrators to eat, sleep, continue their work, and meet people in a completely unfamiliar place. The artists' time was incorporated into the works on the island and carried onto the exhibition. When the artists leave, the island expands with what they left behind. We are building up more and more stories across time and space. Expectations are high about what will happen in the new Earth that has been swept away by the pandemic.

55 Years of Huh Hwe-Tae Art Life - Flowers of Life


55 Years of Huh Hwe-Tae Art Life – Flowers of Life

Emographic Artist Huh Hwe-Tae is well known in Sweden, America, Germany, and England by displaying his art objects as a unique contemporary artist in art critique world and mass media.  He is having a special solo exhibition celebrating his 55 years of art life at Insa Art Center in Seoul, Korea during April 26-May 2, 2017.

He is well known as the creator of Emography and has been working hard with artistic spirit and passion for last 55 years and the pioneer of unique painting based on calligraphy principles.

His ‘Great Birth” series art objects are followed by ‘Flowers of Life’ series in this exhibition.  By expressing the greatness of new living objects, he tried to represent maximized mysteriousness.

To flourish the flowers of life, he is enchanting the symbolism of life which is trying to grow in holiness by love.  To bloom a new human life with hope, he tried to express his new ideas by flourishing flowers. 

Emography is based on human emotions such as happiness, anger, sadness, and joyfulness and he interpreted them again creatively to express his own ‘emotional world’ on a white paper with his power and chi through very quick brushstrokes to create dynamic and symbolic images.  He is trying to visualize “the Great Birth” in his mind by populating a canvas with numerous wrapped paper pieces to flourish the new “Flowers of Life” in representing beautiful lives of human beings.  

To approach the audiences more actively, he converted this innovative art genre from a two-dimensional plane paper to new trial of three-dimensional concept of the 'Emosculpture' (Emosculpture = Emography + Sculpture).

Different from existing current art objects, he created his own unique painting method as a modern artist with artistic character and emotions.  

To communicate with the audiences with his philosophic world approaching toward an origin of life, he is assigning new profound meanings to his art objects. 

As all the objects are working together to make the universe, he is trying to show continuity of life, energy in the infinite space, and primitive phenomena of life through his art objects.  

To attract the spirit and soul of audiences, he introduced his own new form order and contemporary art to be aligned with the current age. 

The essence of art is creation of beauty and striving and challenge to new beauty.  His canvas is a garden filled with Flowers of Life reciting the life in our live residing nests.  

The artist wanted to express the beautiful world of harmonious ‘Flowers of Life’ by working on his ‘Emosculpture’ art objects to advance toward the world of resonating live wavelengths inch by inch.
