Sep 18 – Nov 8, 2020
Kukje Gallery
Busan, South Korea

Kukje Gallery is pleased to present Candida Höfer, a solo exhibition of the internationally celebrated artist on view at Kukje Gallery Busan. The exhibition will be Höfer’s fifth solo presentation with the gallery following Spaces of Enlightenment in 2018 and marks the artist’s first solo show in Busan. Over the course of her distinguished career, Höfer has photographed the interiors of many of the world’s most culturally significant public spaces with a keen focus on libraries, theaters, and museums. The eponymous show will present an incisively curated group of old and new works offering insight into the artist’s extensive practice and showcasing her skill in capturing not only the visual, but also the historical richness of her subjects.

In juxtaposing these old and new images, the exhibition allows viewers to reflect on the passage of time for not only the spaces, but also for the artist. Höfer’s multifaceted portrayal of space infuses social roles and historical context along with the distillation of a passage of time unbeknownst to the viewer, extending beyond determining the era or period during which the space was constructed. Her documentation confronts the historical layers that form certain features of a space and indicates how it exists in present times after all these years. For Höfer, photography is an ideal medium that allows her to directly experience and engage with the abstract dimensions of space and time which constitute her work.

  • Mikiko Hara: Small Myths
    Chose Commune

    Mikiko Hara has her own way of secretly capturing the strangers who cross her path: a young man on the train, a couple holding hands, a little girl playing in a park… Sometimes their eyes meet briefly as she presses the shutter, but Mikiko Hara does not exchange with her subjects. Yet, these portraits reveal something infinitely personal, as if the photographer and her subjects were bound by an invisible pact (more…)

    Dancer / Choreographer
    Featured Profile

    Dance is my life. It has kept me alive. Performance is a natural extension of it and through it. I’ve made my most cherished human connections. The more I perform, the more I understand what it is to choreograph, and the more I choreograph, the more I understand the real value of performance. (more…)

  • Hajime Kimura: Family of Lies
    Three Books

    I didn’t tell people that both my parents had died until a certain time. There was a time when I talked about my family as if they were still here. I don’t know, but I think my mother and father probably influenced me. When I think about why I used to lie like that. I had to admit somewhere that my family was far from the ideal I had imagined, but I didn’t want to admit it out in the open. (more…)
