AHN SUN MI – GONG ZONE
LOO & LOU GALLERY HAUT – MARAIS
From November 12 through February 6, 2016

Ten years after Sun Mi’s first self-portaits, the exibition « Gong Zone » provides a new persepective of her work. A selection of ten photographs dating from 2007 to 2015, most of them unknow to the public, will present the artist’s new energy. The idea of coexistence is translated in korean by the term « Gong Zone », and come across Sun Mi’s whole work in a game of discordance in which, the artist stands between two worlds. The process keeps her in an almost childlike universe.

Furthermore, in features an oniric arrangement imprinted with melancholy, the exhibition reveals the intimate progression and maturity of her artwork.Nature is not only a thematic of renewing our vision of Sun Mi’s artwork . It remains the major topic of these photographs, a universal heritage. « when i settled in France, i felt very nostalgic about Korea, », remembers Ahn Sun Mi : «Nature as my only familiar presence , becamed my shelter, my refuge. With years, it never stopped to nourrish me, and this is where I drew my strenghts from », « my work fully witnessneses the undivisable character in Korean culture of the idea of nature and being ».
