    Before Wallets, And Wallets

    Artist: 이규원 | Lee, Gyuwon

    Exhibition Dates: 2018.12.13 - 2019.01.09

     

     


    GALLERY CHOI (갤러리 초이)는 2018년 12월 13일부터 2019년 1월 9일까지 작가 이규원의 개인전 을 개최한다. 이번 전시에서는 작가가 올해부터 작업한 ‘Wallets’ 시리즈를 처음으로 선보이게 되며, 이 시리즈가 어떻게 구상되어 왔는지 작가의 지난 작품들과 조우하며 그 자취를 따라가 볼 수 있는 기획과 함께 선보이게 된다.


    이번 개인전은 작가의 모든 작업을 아우른 2011년부터 작업해온 ‘Made In Korea’ 시리즈, 2016년의 ‘Hommage to Kosuth’를 이어 2017년의 ‘The Bridge’ 시리즈까지 반추하며 자연스럽게 ‘Wallets’ 시리즈와 연결된다. 작가의 작품세계 전반을 총집한 전시는 이번이 처음이다.


    작가 노트에서 이규원은 다음과 같이 말하고 있다. “전세계적으로 Cryptocurrency 즉, 암호화폐의 열풍, 논란이 일어나고 있다. 그 누구는 암호화폐는 탈 중앙화란 진보적 이념을 가지고 있으며 블록체인 기술은 미래로 가는 4차 혁명 시대의 열쇠가 될 것이라고 하며, 다른 누구는 이것은 도박, 투기이기에 곧 사라질 운명에 놓인 일시적인 현상이라고 이야기한다. 나에게 이러한 모든 아이디어와 현상들은 매력적으로 다가올 수밖에 없었다.“


    그는 블록체인의 핵심 장점 중 하나인 암호화, 그리고 그 과정에서 볼 수 있는 수많은 알파벳과 숫자로 이뤄진 텍스트의 형태가 바로 전 시리즈 ‘The Bridge’에서 주장했던 것(“URL은 단순히 다리 역할만 하는 것이 아니라 그 자체로도 미술 작품이 될 수 있다.”)과 매우 닮아 있음을 발견할 수 있었다고 말한다. 작가는 암호화폐의 ‘지갑(Wallet)’이 가지고 있는 사회〮인문학적 의미, 암호화폐의 부작용 중 하나인 투기적 성격, 미술 작품과 시장 사이에서 오는 사회경제학적 의미 등 그것이 가지는 미묘한 관계와 특성에 주목하며 ‘그 ‘지갑(Wallet)’을 작품으로 표현한다. 마치 백화점에 있는 명품(이라 불리는) 지갑을 팔고, 그것을 소유하는 것처럼 암호화폐의 지갑 또한 현대미술 작품으로 표현되어 소비재의 성격을 띠는 것이다.


    암호화폐의 ‘지갑(Wallet)’을 미술 작품으로 표현하는 작가만의 시선을 보여주는 이번 개인전의 주 테마 ‘Wallets’ 시리즈는 또한 앞서 말한 작가의 전 시리즈들이 형태만 다른 변주일뿐, 결국 작가 본연이 말하고자 하는 바를 통(通)하는 바가 있었음을 증명하는 중요한 꼭지점이다. 이렇듯 이 젊은 작가가 다루고 있는 현대미술의 근간을 이루는 개념미술이, 이번 전시를 통해 작가와 그의 작품에게, 혹은 더 넓게는 현대미술 자체에 의미 있고 중요한 질문들을 던지고 또 답하는 기회들을 가질 수 있길 바란다.


    이규원 | Lee, Gyuwon
    작가 이규원은 홍익대학교 회화과를 졸업하고 영국에 유학, 영국 Goldsmiths 석사과정을 밟고 홍익대학교 회화과 박사 수료를 완료했다. 이후 작가는 현재까지 한국 및 상하이에서 8번의 개인전을 열었으며 영국에서부터 시작해 국내의 다수의 그룹전에 참여하고 있다. 작가의 작품은 The Leslie Collection에 소장되어 있다.

    Pointing to the recent pull down of online content such the streaming show Evil Minds 2, some outlets surmise that the disappearance of these artists' music is the result of increased government regulation.A stampede at Shanghai's historic riverfront walk that killed 36 people during New Year's Eve celebrations cast a shadow over urban management and emergency response in China's crowded cities.Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) District Engineer Michael Prysby faces six charges; Stephen Busch, DEQ's Office of Drinking Water's Lansing and Jackson district supervisor, faces five charges; and Michael Glasgow, Flint's utilities administrator, faces two charges, the Detroit News reported. Applicants who can produce all these documents are already demonstrating that they have the financial capacity to pay the rent and a wellearned reputation for reliability and honesty. These are basic steps that most companies would require for someone to open any kind of account with them, and a rental situation is no different.

    Most other people need a minimum of four weeks to get ready. Asking for proof of experience can help avoid disappointments later.Earlier, world No.If you are operating a partnership beauty products retail business then pay the amount of gains to your partners on time. Photo: CFPAn April 13 assault in a Beijing hotel in which a pimp attacked a female guest who he mistook for a member of a rival prostitution ring has made headlines, and has also focused public attention on the rampant prostitution in China‘s budget hotels。After security camera footage of the attack was released online, it had a huge impact and was watched hundreds of millions of times。 Many women have begun to fear for their safety if they stay in these cheap hotels。Last Friday, the Beijing police closed their investigation and detained five suspects。 The police sent out a notice online, saying the attacker worked for a prostitution ring and thought the woman was working with a competitor。The fact that ads for sex workers are slipped under the doors of hotel rooms is no news to anyone that has ever stayed in a budget hotel。 While many hotels and local law enforcement bodies have tried to stop this from going on, the poor security of many hotels means that the practice is as common as ever。A reporter from The Beijing News went undercover to a few hotels in the capital and called the numbers on a few cards to see the reality of this kind of prostitution。Last Wednesday, the Beijing News reporter checked in at a Seven Day hotel in the city‘s Jingtaiqiao area。 He called a number on a card and a man picked up the phone to introduce the “business。”The man said a “regular service” would cost 600 yuan ($93), “white collar woman service” costs 800, and “model service” costs 1,000。 The package includes two hours of “bath and massage。”After 30 minutes, a woman called the reporter to tell him that she was in the hotel building。 When they met and the reporter told her he just wanted to chat, the woman immediately called a man on the phone who reprimanded the reporter and said “It doesn‘t matter whether you go through with it or not, you have to pay up front!”After she left the reporter called another number on a different card, and 20 minutes later, a woman who calls herself “Queen Fan” met with the reporter in the hotel。She told the reporter she and a couple of other girls are managed by a socalled “chicken head,” who introduces customers to women in different districts。 She usually serves people in the southern parts of the city and about 40 percent of her business is in budget hotels。 But she confessed these hotels aren‘t “safe” for their business, because there is sometimes a police presence。“Our boss repeatedly warned us not to go to Haidian district, because there are many undercover police,” she told The Beijing News。Her boss has eight cell phones and receives calls about the “business” every day。 The prostitutes are monitored by drivers who transport them to hotels and ensure their safety, and overseeing these drivers there are “chicken heads,” who also organize the meetings and take part of their profit。 Some prostitutes have never even met their boss。She said the cards are distributed in many places besides budget hotels, they target sidewalks and cars‘ windshields。 After a customer calls the card, they reach a “chicken head,” who deals with them directly or through a mediator。There are two ways a “chicken head” finds staff, “Queen Fan” said。 They reach out to acquaintances or use WeChat to find people nearby, add them and ask whether they want a “parttime job。”“Queen Fan” once took a cosmetics training course。 But after she paid thousands of yuan she realized she had been cheated。 Then she went into prostitution to recoup her losses。At midnight, the Beijing News reporter checked in at a Seven Days hotel near Beijing Industrial University in Chaoyang district。 When he called a number on a card, the woman gave the phone to a driver。“We will wait outside when they are working and drive them back when they are finished,” said the man。 He said he usually drives a girl somewhere every two hours。 There are about 10 women in their “company” and he earns about 10,000 yuan every month。 Whatever the sex workers earn, they have to share with the “chicken head” and driver。The “porno cards” have their special ways of getting into hotel rooms。 Even though many hotels have taken security measures and only allow people to use the building‘s elevators after they swipe their room keys, it still doesn’t prevent people from getting in。 They can get in the hallways using the fireescape stairs and won‘t be stopped by anyone。The Beijing News reporter visited 10 budget hotels, including Hanting, Seven Day, and Rujia。 Porno cards can be seen easily in these hotels, emblazoned with the words “emotional company,” “passionate woman” or “traveling to paradise。”When hotel staff clean rooms and hallways, the most common piece of trash one sees is these cards。 Sometimes a few dozen cards can be found on one floor。“I can often see the distributors when I clean,” one cleaner said。 He remembers seeing a few young men distributing the cards, and they would run away as soon as they see hotel staff。 “We can‘t stop them anyway。 All we could do is clean these cards away。”A security guard at a Seven Day hotel in Chaoyang district tried to stop a card distributer once。 He said he was cleaning the cards off the ground while he saw someone in his 20s distributing the cards。 When he said he would call the police, the man quickly ran out the door and the guard couldn‘t catch him。Police told The Beijing News they‘ve received many phone calls concerning these calling cards。 But distributors usually conceal their tracks and they are hard to track down。 Even if they are caught, because there’s no proof they participate in prostitution, they can only be punished for “disturbing so.
