Gallery H.A.N. is planning an exhibition on the topic of the existence of human. We try to find the reason of existence of human by projecting the shape of human life or nature.

Myungil Lee’s work, underpinned by Buddhist notions, highlights how primal instincts drive human life. Through exploration of those instincts, he defines and challenges identity and self-identity and forces the spectator to question its own.

Ryung Kal illustrates the harmony of yin and yang, natural and artificial (dis)order, by using a mixture of organic and soft streams, sharp and solid lines so that harmony and fusion flow as paintings on surface. The collision of lines and side-space represents human feelings and energy.

Sculptor Wook-Jang Cheung works on the problem of this time environment by experimenting with the nature and specificity of art itself with materiality. The recent sculpture A long journey long journey of polar bears, camels, elephants, deer, etc., with organically elongated limbs like branches and plants with a sparkling material of stainless steel, gives a surreal and noble feel.
