2021 KCC UK X Germany Open Call
2021 KCC UK X Germany Open Call (credit: kccuk.org.uk)

Nothing is – everything just has been or will be

The Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK) showcases its annual open call exhibition inviting six international artists selected by four jurors: Alessio Antoniolli (Director of Gasworks), Dr. Sook-Kyung Lee (Senior Curator at Tate Modern), Li Zhenhua (Curator), Dr. Siegfried Zielinski (Professor). For the first time ever, this year’s KCC Open Call was designed to travel across two major cities - the heart of contemporary art, London and Berlin, in order to expand the opportunity of these talented emerging artists. Entitled Nothing is - everything just has been or will be, the finalists of the 2021 KCC UK and Germany Open call creatively reflect on the notion of time and its fluidity.

The exhibition brings together various ideas and artistic expressions of winners, which interrogate the world where the definition of time has been blurred, and trace the shifting notion or value of time fueled by digitalization and globalization. Such ideas are particularly pertinent to this era of pandemics where our lives have been forced to online and physical movement has been restricted. Diverse in content and media, their works each embrace a unique creative practice such as visualization of the passing of time, material manipulations, and profound research into historical dialogues.

Date: 12 November 2021 – 28 January 2022
