Somewhere Over the Window // Mixed media on linen, 2020
Hyunwook Park is interested in ordinary time and existence that, although are the biggest part of life, often fall into oblivion. Park has focused his gaze mainly on objects and places that are likely to disappear. Now, during his residency at GlogauAIR, he is expanding his attention to everyday moments through scenes beyond the windows.
The title ‘Somewhere Over the Window’ is also the name of his recent project in which windows are dividing the world into Park’s world and another world, revealing the existence of another life, and making a spatial layer. The habitat beyond windows are clues for imagining stories and people living in those hidden places. The gesture of looking and imagining over the window makes him sure the unknown ordinary lives and remains.
