SONG Mingyu studied Fine art at Korea National University of Arts, and earned his MFA at the same school. The artist processes, classifies and systematizes the data from the experiences in a landscape, and focuses on ways to visualize screens composed of signs, symbols, and decorations. From 2016 to 2018, the artist was interested in landscapes composed of fictional images based on reality, and planned a tripartite exhibition SFD: Science Fiction Drawing that adopted the logic of the thesis, antithesis, synthesis, and expressed forms of mental labor and practice, individual rules, the landscape of desire, and decoration without narrative structure.
This year, a sequel to the tripartite exhibition series will take place. By employing the unfinished stories from the previous exhibition as well as the landscapes that were not included before, as they had not been discovered yet, contents such as ‘the sculptural order in the non-visual world’, ‘the color of darkness in the night landscape’, combination of epidermal images that are meaningless’ and more will be presented in the project. Through his two upcoming solo exhibitions the artist is planning to show the past work and its related drawings, one-dimensional and installation works.
