Landscape of Subjunctive: Taehoon Kim

Taehoon Kim’s work evokes a place between the subconscious and the evolution of substance. He uses materials that are modified and hybridized, as a metaphor for amorphous communication and the struggle for psychological interaction between space and colors. Also, his work attempts to reveal and develop a persuasive reflection on the essence of humanity and our relationships with other creatures.

His work shows that the viewers think of where we are from and how humans evolved physically and emotionally. Our appearances and emotions evolved from instincts based on survival. His works ask us to consider our origins and how mankind has evolved physically and emotionally. By examining how other species communicate and how to read these communications is apparent only through the understanding of our own conscious, unconscious, and subconscious self. These questions bring to light the possibility of reading the minds of other species. This show will give the viewer the opportunity to question their relationship to themselves and to their consciousness of the other. People usually only think about communicating with other human beings. It will not only suggest diversity and broaden the perspective of subjective matter but also it will show visualized color combinations that are dominantly strong.

Dittmar Memorial Gallery, established in 1972, is a student-operated gallery that enlightens and challenges the Northwestern University community with the works of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Chicago area and the Midwest. The staff at Dittmar is dedicated to developing and fostering the Northwestern community’s awareness of the changing attitudes and trends in the art world. We invite artists who work in the contemporary vein, as well as artists who offer an alternative perspective that hinges on the periphery of the art world. In essence, our goal is to provide well-deserved exposure to those outside or on the margins of the mainstream art world.
