Real estate agency advertising, take-away restaurant menus, leaflets about opening a shop or promoting a particular product... we can't take it anymore! These brochures invade our mailboxes every day without us really being able to say stop. Kim Chun Hwan, a South Korean artist, decided to use this raw material that he saw piling up in his home. He creates collages with it, in which he works with the paper without cutting out precise patterns, without any particular selection of images. The material accumulates and saturates thanks to the repetitive gesture. In reaction to the mechanisms of consumption and the abundance of images, pasting allows the original material to be moved, to make sense of it, to introduce reality into the representation. The images seen, which may have been challenging, blend together and bring out things that have so far escaped the eye. This very existence of the work leads the spectator to let his gaze wander. The artist thus appropriates reality and restores the history of a society drained by cultural chaos. A fascinating work from the manipulation of a medium to the creation of a vibrant and colourful work!
