Essence. We invited Mia Dudek and Sejin Cho to reflect on their practice through the philosophical notion of ‘essence’. In fact, the interest of both artists does not focus merely on the superficiality of the material, but rather they investigate the existence of an implicit value to the subjective reality of the work of art.
Mia Dudek (1989) is a Polish artist currently on Art Residency at Tomaz Hipolito’s Studio in Marvila, Lisbon. She graduated from the London College of Communication in 2012 and completed her MA at the Royal College of Art. Mia Dudek’s work tries to build a physical poetics of holes as conduits for an engagement with the audience to address questions of boundaries and proximity. She expands the conventions of photography, by making physical installations that incorporate concrete, latex and security barriers which are in a creative tension with the photographic print.
Sejin Cho (1981, South Korea). The world is full of pain. But lives go on. I find beauty in it. I question about life and death, and all beings on the path and visualize the contemplation within my artistic practice.
