    Elga Wimmer Gallery(526 West 26th St. Suite 310, New York City) proudly presents"Dreams of the Invisible: New Photographs by Min Kwon". The show will run from July 26 –Aug.8, 2012 with an Opening Reception on Thursday, July 26, from 6-8PM


     Min Kwon’s Corpus Feminae comprises his theme but as opposed to Robert Mapplethorpe’s concerted investigation of binary relationships, Kwon attempts to capture the illusive quality of his imagined subjects.  Kwon is one of the new avant-garde artists emerging from Korea on the global scene and as such, his work is engages issues not usual for Asian artists a few years ago. The artistic themes of Asian artists until very recently had to do either with religious philosophy seen in many Buddha figures, binary relationships seen in images of dualist subjects and media such as dark/light, smooth/rough, or playful/serious. In the alternative subjects treated the rituals and traditions of a given area such as Korea for example so that local scenery likes the Kumgang Mountains. However, in recent times Asian artists in their globalization process are speaking from a personal perspective using biography like Nikki Lee or focusing on the body like Min Kwon.
     

     Min was born in July 1965 in Seoul, Korea. He graduated from the art department of Kyung-Ki University, Korea. His artistic interests vary from painting, drawing, comic books, to photography. Although he created many photographic works after graduation, his official debut didn’t happen until he participated in the group exhibition “The People Who Encompass the World” in 2009 at the Seoul Metro Gallery. Finally in the fall of 2011, he had a solo exhibition with the title of “Fragmented Memories” at Irum Gallery, Chungmoo-ro, Seoul, Korea
