Times Reimagined is an aesthetic laboratory by Chun Kwang Young, an artist who has been working for about thirty years with the theme of the interconnectedness between living beings and the socioecological values of their relationships. His hanji (Korean mulberry paper) oriented reliefs, sculptures, installations, and, as a highlight, the site-specific architectural structure made in dialogue with architect Stefano Boeri are all being staged during the Exhibition. The paper, which once lived as books, was reborn as symbolic creatures, reimagining the knowledge, information, and values that have judged and determined our times. Through these, audiences are encouraged to reconsider existing nonecological practice and seek new exits.
