AMATEURS EXHIBITION / STRAAT GALERIE

Let me give you a little tour of our current exhibition at Straat Galerie in Marseille : )

This exhibition, titled AMATEURS which is also the duo name of Mattie and I, is the outcome of our two-week residency from end of April to beginning May. Only idea we took with us to Marseille was the idea of making a very VERY thick book of quick sketches. First four or five days of our residency were dedicated to drawing. Mattie and I would sit next to or in front of each other and just drew and discussed about the exhibition. Then we created a few rules of our exhibition:

  1. Draw many many sketches.
  2. Ask friends to choose their favorites.
  3. Turn the selected sketches into sculptures.
  4. Name each piece after the friend who chose the sketch.

We ended up drawing more than 1600 sketches, which we hand bounded into a book of 3200 + pages, and 11 big and some bigger wall pieces named after our friends.

The opening of the exhibition was a part of PAC (an annual contemporary art festival in Marseille) and  l’Année France-Corée 2015-2016 (the year of France and Korea sharing their cultures through events, performances, exhibitions, etc), so many people visited from art walks and group tours.

Under are some photos from professional photographers who took some photos of our exhibition.
