At the conjuncture of significantly revolutionary changes recently taking place in Korea in political and social terms, this exhibition calls attention to what can be called the current of affects, which makes you feel pain about the sufferings of others, rage against social injustice and violence, constitute a certain spontaneous community and finally take some actions collectively. Of particular interest is the question how social emotions form and flow in the digitally networked circumstances in which sensorial experiences take a new course of modality.
Common Front, Affectively features contemporary international artists whose works in video, installation, sound and performance capture different formations and movements of emotion and feeling. They will make the occasion to explore the relations between the individual and the collective with regard to connectivity and isolation, and the affects manifested and controlled in a rapidly changing media environment where technologies are inextricably woven into everyday life.
