Kim Kwan Young's 2022 solo exhibition <Forgotten but Not Gone> is an exhibition of various attempts that have not been shown before as part of <The Memories of the Unconscious>.
Kim Kwan Young's work <The Memories of the Unconscious> is a project that harmonizes the artist's sophisticated technique with brilliant colors. As part of exploring the artist's introspection on the unconscious, this project was planned up to the 1000th work, and is currently working on the 700th. The work is an abstract art that is not bound by free composition and form, and contains the artist's representation using points, lines, and planes in the vast unconscious world that transcends time and space.
Kim Kwan Young, who has exhibited mainly at overseas art market, will hold a solo exhibition in Korea after a long time. This exhibition mainly attempts to distract the attention of the artist, who has stayed only in the center. By leaving the center blank, the sense of space is preserved and the subject forms are dispersed around the periphery to allow a more focused view of the work.Not only that, it captures the memories lost in the unconscious that the artist wanted to find while carrying out the project, as well as the artist's feelings. The belief that a memory is
forgotten over time, but does not disappear unless the soul changes is fully reflected in this exhibition.
The world of the unconscious presented by Kim Kwan Young is the color itself, and this exhibition can be seen as a feast of various mediums. The visual effects and colorful appreciation points of each material are the elements that enrich this solo exhibition. Starting with this exhibition, it is expected that the artist's continuous research and reflection will be able to complete <The Memories of the Unconscious> with perfection until the project is completed.
