Mind Hours Hand Minutes
In his exhibition Mind Hours Hand Minutes, Min Yoon presents new sculptures and wall works that address the paradoxical structure of time and movement in the metabolic process of art making. If the artistic process is „creative“, that is, an act that brings something new into being, this being bears no traces of that creation, but instead appears as a vegetating creature animated by nothing but its own decomposition. Here it is not the viewer who digests the artwork, but it is the artwork devouring itself, presenting its organs in the form of their undoing, leaving us with an abundance of emptiness, an empty dummy, a cloudy tummy. If the demands of creation in the art world turn time into artworks, Yoon does the reverse, elevating decreation and turning artworks back into time. But perhaps it is not so much a reversal as a perversion, in which the artwork breaks down its objects and organs to disorganize its anatomical structure.
