About the Work of So Young Park
On Saturday, 24 September, we cordially invite you to an art talk as part of the finissage. Dr Marc Wellmann, artistic director of the Haus am Lützowplatz, and curator Nicola E. Petek will discuss the works of So Young Park together with Christiane Meixner.
Sat 24 Sep 5 pm


In their radical relevance, the surreal landscapes of So Young Park move between paradise and apocalypse, between contemplative solitude and the feeling of being watched. It seems as if the painter wants to document either the moment before creation or that after the extinction of civilization, as if the viewers can observe both stages of humanity simultaneously from an all-encompassing vantage point.
The works reflect the cycle of matter in the universe, linking the coming into being and passing away and the relationship between nature, man and the supernatural. The oil paintings shown in the exhibition were created in South Korea over the past two years and will now be on view in Germany for the first time.
Curator Nicola E. Petek and Frontviews are delighted to present the paintings of South Korean artist So Young Park on the upper floor of the exhibition space HAUNT in Berlin-Tiergarten.
 
So Young Park was born in Seoul, South Korea. She lives and works in Berlin and Seoul. The artist studied at the Universität der Künste Berlin from 2004 to 2009 and was a master student of Prof. Daniel Richter and Prof. Robert Lucander.
Park's oil paintings give an insight into a world of dreams and visions. Two-dimensional yet profound, they allow the viewer to gaze into luminous dream spaces that provide a glimpse into a surreal parallel world as if through a silken curtain.
Her works are presented in galleries and institutional exhibitions worldwide. Her art can be found in public and private collections in the US, South Korea and Germany.
