The Other Side of the Moon
4482-2019; The Other Side of the Moon Voices of Contemporary Artists from Korea and the UK Our world is filled with parallel matters whose values are often created by comparison and contradiction. Your fortune might be related to someone else’s misfortune. Wealth and poverty can co-exist within a society, yet the two are distant from each other. We often find comfort and/or despair within our own juxtaposed world. The other side of our world gets dismissed perhaps too often by ourselves, like the flip side of the coin and the darker side of the Moon.
Its 8th exhibition, 4482-2019: The Other Side of the Moon, also presents a special display of exciting artworks by 10 artists who are represented by our sponsor, the Soohoh Gallery in South Korea. Two accomplished female artists have also been invited to showcase their works alongside the main exhibition.
4482-2019: The Other Side of the Moon showcases exciting artworks by over 30 UK-based Korean contemporary artists who investigate such contradictions and juxtapositions, the familiar and/or alien aspects of our world through their thought-provoking artworks. Their voices are collected, shared and presented as diverse dialogues through six powerful quotations;
"Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. Then your love would also change" (William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet)
"Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody" (Mark Twain)
"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass" (Anton Chekhov)
"We ran as if to meet the moon" (Robert Frost)
"I am a cemetery by the moon unblessed" (Charles Baudelaire, Paris Spleen)
"Go slowly, my lovely moon, go slowly" (Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner)
