Whistle Presents 'Oblique Afternoons' by Taeyoon Kim

On view in Seoul until October 1.

Just because Frieze is over, doesn’t mean the art world should shift its focus from Seoul. The South Korean capital has proven through its list of rising artists and emerging galleries that there is plenty to look forward to for the years to come. One of which is a new solo exhibition by Taeyoon Kim at Whistle gallery.

You can say that Kim is a collector of time, both soundbytes and video footage, that he distorts by eliminating their spatial and temporal characteristics to give a feeling of déjà vu within his viewer. In Oblique Afternoons, he continues on this trajectory by presenting video and sound installations of time felt in the city. Pedestrians are hardly ever present in his work, opting to focus on noises, rhythms, and magnified corners of everyday life.

“My daily life is a series of experiences facing repeated coincidences,” said Kim in a statement. These instances, or coincidences as the artist puts it, are often felt simply by walking and observing the pulse of his daily routine.

To complement the installations, Kim is also presenting a series of drawings made using colored pencil on bristol paper. Each composition can be viewed as a freeze-framed snapshot of his video work — where time mixes into a repetition of shapes and colors.

Oblique Afternoons opened earlier this week and will be on view at Whistle gallery in Seoul until October 1.
