人生は永遠につづく饗宴ではない。人生は涙の谷でもあり、バラの谷でもある。 涙を語るならバラを忘れてはならないし、バラを語るなら涙を忘れてはならない。 ―ジャン・ドルメッソン

Life is not a perpetual feast, it is a valley of tears, but it is also a valley of roses. If you speak of tears, you must not forget the roses, and if you speak of roses, you must not forget the tears. ーJean d'Ormesson

Vacant will present Tangible Shades by Hyoweon Baek, born in South Korea and currently lives and works in Japan and South Korea. In her first solo exhibition in four years, the artist will present new works drawn on the theme of the natural or supernatural beauty that abounds in this world and her own inner memories.

Just like the tip of a brush in calligraphy can express the wind and moon beyond the symbols of letters, the paintings that emerge from the interplay of her lines, a mixture of abstract and figurative, reveal the contours of multiple landscapes. The brushwork is an attempt to confront the “shadow,” which is inseparable from beauty, and to reveal the ambivalence of all things.
