Curator's Eye

By uniting the surreal and the mundane, Cha Min-Young’s work is inhabited by both the familiar and the extraordinary. Min-Young offers an insight into an alternate reality; one that is ever-present just beyond the boundaries of our own known existence. Encouraging the viewer to look beyond what first meets the eye, she injects uncanny pockets of life into found objects that would otherwise be overlooked and invisible - ultimately allowing the viewer to question their perception of life beyond their own. A big hit when she showed at START Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery.

This is a work about the other side of urban space and the other side of works of art. Vent pipes are temporary spaces that are necessary to maintain urban space and produce something, but are not of concern. In the interior space of Blue Hole, the video continuously rotates through the cracks in the building being demolished. In video, the blue wave (reminiscent of ventilation) intersects with the production process, which is a necessary process for the completion of the work, but is never seen in the finished work. With this work, I tried to reveal the invisible system and emotions of urban space by revealing the invisible side (the production process of the work) and making it a part of the work.
