——————————
The exhibition presents Korean experiences and inspiration by 3 Canadian artists who undertook their residency in Korea recently. These featured artists are Brendan Fernandes, Pavitra Wickramasinghe and June Pak. Brendan undertook his residency at the Gyeonggi Creation Centre in 2009; Pavitra worked in the Changdong Studio at the MMCA in 2012; and June carried out her research in Litmus Ansan in 2013. Although the works presented here mainly reveal the outcome of their residency in Korea, it is not possible to separate the cause and the consequent influences of their residency from these direct outcomes of their experience. Hence, Brendan’s “Foe (2008)” reflects the precursor of his Korean residency, while Pavitra’s “Au-delà de la terre/ Landless Longitude (2016)” presents the much evolved influences from Korea. Focused on her ongoing research on ethnicity and the cultural impact of visual representation of ethnic subjects in popular media, June’s works in the exhibition portray her thoughts on her identity and ethnical presentation as a Korean-Canadian.
