Jong Oh |  Lodestone

September 2014 - January 2015

 

 

Jong Oh was born in Mauritania in 1981. Having spent most of his childhood in Spain, Oh then moved to South Korea. He completed his MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York City,  where he currently lives and works. His work has been shown in the U.S., Korea, Mexico and several European countries. This is his first solo exhibition in Mexico.

 

Neither photographs nor descriptive language do much to clarify the spatial complexity of his installations,  which appear to move abruptly between visibility and invisibility.  One must be within the space to fully experience this pieces. Departing from the manipulation of simple elements such as thread, graphite, wood, pegs, weights and acrylic sheets, Oh generates subtle compositions, finely callibrated to stay in balance. The punctual lighting and the shadows  that arise from these materials are essential to complete the work. Oh's work invites the viewer to reflect on the limits of perception and about the multiplicity of the spatial and temporal dimensions that come together to shape our experience of  “reality”.
