일반적으로 보기 흉하다고 하는 작품을 전시하여 그와 반대되는 아름다운 작품을 상상하게 끔 해보려 한다, 흉하다는 것은 홀로 존재하지 않는다. 그와 반대되는 아름다운 것이 있어야 존재 한다. 인간도 예술행위를 하면 할수록 그와 반대되는 무언가 계속해서 만들어 낼 것이다. 어떻게 보면 예술 활동을 안 하는 것이 진정한 예술을 한다 할 수도 있을 것이다. 모든 것은 상대적으로 존재한다. 좋고 나쁘고, 길고 짧고, 더럽고 깨끗하고....

I create an artwork that most people would consider ugly because I want you to imagine a beautiful one in comparison. “Ugly” does not exist alone. Only when there is something beautiful to compare it against can we say that something is ugly. The more we create art, the more we will continue to create something to compare it against. In a way, we can create true art without explicitly creating it. Everything is relative: Good and bad, long and short, dirty and clean….these are merely degrees on continums between polar opposites.
