MOON SONG: Se-Lyung Moon exhibits at the Fellner Louvigny gallery
The artist Se-Lyung MOON exhibits alongside Keong-A SONG, from Saturday 25th July to Saturday 19th September, at the Fellner Louvigny Gallery in Luxembourg.
One of the artist’s main themes is hair and its cultural importance. Hair is considered an attribute of beauty, is malleable, renewable and becomes an occasional victim to scissors. By cutting it, scientifically speaking, strands of memory and hidden sediments are also removed. Life-sized, vividly executed acrylic paintings on paper and small, fragile works created on thin wooden discs are on exhibition next to each other. Wood, which in a different way, also bears memories and is a snapshot of growth and beauty.
In her complex, virtuoso drawings, the draughtswoman combines her own dream images with social and political realities, making them into statements that at first seem surreal. On closer examination, multi-layered narratives become readable, embodied by a puzzle of sceneries and populated by human-animal figures. A ‘Human Comedy’, in which animal masks unveil humanity and reveal a humorous and often tender look.
