DOOSAN Gallery is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition for 2024, DOOSAN Art Lab Exhibition 2024, from January 17th (Wed.) to February 24th (Sat.). “DOOSAN Art Lab” is an ongoing project initiated by DOOSAN Art Center in 2010 with the mission of discovering and supporting emerging artists in the visual and performing arts. The “DOOSAN Art Lab Exhibition” introduces five artists under the age of 35, selected through an open call. This year’s artists, Youngmi Kim, Jieun Park, Yehwan Song, Lim Jeong Soo, and Yeoreum Jeong, each engaging different mediums, refuse to represent the world as it is and instead draw subject matter from existing systems, process them, and present them under a new light. 


The five artists are brought together not to showcase a single cohesive theme but because of each of their outstanding practices and promising trajectories. Therefore, they present to the audience their diverse worlds in painting, sculpture, installation, and interactive art, unfettered in form and content. Youngmi Kim primarily uses videos and photos to observe repetitive gestures people display in everyday life, capturing undertones of tension and anticipation for the unknown future. Jieun Park reinterprets elements of traditional Eastern paintings in the contemporary vein and explores variations of Eastern painting by introducing different mediums into it. Yehwan Song creates alternative website designs to evoke uncanny experiences and presents video installations that bring renewed attention and reevaluation to the familiar mechanisms of the web. Lim Jeong Soo creates sculptures by adopting forms within the scope of our perception and rendering them into a third type of creation, experimenting with the human process of recognition. Yeoreum Jeong traces the correlation between places and memory by conducting research and collecting data on specific places and reconfiguring the results into videos.


The works of these artists revisit familiar landscapes, extract them from their conventional contexts, and re-present them by reexamining, contorting, and slowing them down. In other words, they are grounded in close observations of the reality surrounding us and questions that may arise from those observations. Introducing artists whose practices depart from inquiries into reality, this exhibition, if only momentarily, unfurls an “alternative reality” teeming with possibilities along with our lived reality.
