Seon Ghi Bahk

(South Korea 1966 -)


Biography

BAHK Seon Ghi visualized objects in a way that constantly look different depending on each individual’s point of view fundamentally leading us to question our very existence. This constant shift in plane that the works exist in ultimately forces the viewers to go through the process of self-suspicionthat ultimately leadsto inquiry.

“My artistic work aims to probe the depths of my mind and thoughts. I endeavor my work to be as close as it can be to my thoughts. No matter what materials are used, my work reveals my thoughts and feeling without damaging the very existence of those materials. Between this concept of art and spectators my work therefore is a mediator. I express feelings I have with this materialistic world to which my ordinary life belongs. I neither want to clarify the essence of materials and mind, nor to reveal the essence of perception. Nor do I have a desire to return the clarifiedessence to its existence.” -1997
