LAST CHANCE Ran Hwang: The Flight of Time
The first solo exhibition in the UAE for the Korean artist Ran Hwang. The Flight of Time explores the relationship between observing the cyclical nature of life and taking part in it, each series dealing with the idea of time in some way: the Plum Blossom series symbolises ephemerality, the Buddha and Temple series imply the vanity of short-lived power and subjectivity of time.
Hwang explores her cross-cultural experience within her work with the use of mass-produced materials that elevate and shape into the natural understanding of the world. Her work transcends ‘women’s work’ and redefines ‘craft’ as she discovers the fluidity in construction, rethinking what it means for a mechanism to be employed within the setting of the work. Iconic Buddhist imagery of birds, temples, and cherry blossoms are all juxtaposed with the indistinguishable element found within buttons, creating an aesthetic this is entirely her own.
