Deep Thought Space
Deep inside each human’s heart, you can find inconvenience and anxiety wandering everywhere.
Even as we are living on, we do not become aware of the worries we carry deep down. Sometimes, that same feeling bursts out of nowhere as if we were going to hell.
These various types of anxieties are endlessly changing due to interactions and we can become tormented by this cycle.
In order to escape this anguish, Ki-Bong decided to take on meditation.
The artist tries to put different fragments of words in his artworks
During his process, his artworks turn into porcelain.
After colouring the canvas, he makes a collage with an ink stick on it.
Above, he uses Hanji again, wrinkles it and creates a form of cure.
This process is necessary with the attitude of the meditator.
If Kee Bong fully devotes himself, at the finalisation of one artwork, the anxiety in his head just disappears.
