Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts invites you to view Songs without Lyrics, a solo exhibition by South Korean artist Kyungwoo Chun. This show presents a series of in-situ, photographic, video and performance works.
Chun is known for his experimental portraits that are based on temporally set processes. Creating un-familiar situations that can provoke modes of interdependence, he provides a space for people to enter and deliberate on the meaning of the most ordinary actions. Relationships form the core of his practice and much of his work is based on situations and encounters that revolve around concepts of empathy, care and compassion.
Songs without Lyrics expands our capacities for listening to sounds that are unknown, creating alternatives for lyrics with no notes.
The show engages with Goa's Ektaal Children’s Choir in a series of collaborations. In a photographic and video performance, the children become the main actors as they sing to nature and to each other.
The ephemeral settings and the conditions in each work become the catalysts and witnesses for something to take place between people who are brought together. In this space relationships can emerge, communication takes place, vulnerabilities can breathe. The portrait, performance, video become time capsules. Chun invites us to watch, listen, experience the rhythmic circulation of time.
The exhibition will remain open to the public until 11 November 2023 | 10.00am to 6.30pm (Sundays closed)
