Intro
We can look at the same things but it's not the same as how other people see it. We live on Earth our whole lives looking only at one side of the moon. It's the same for everyone on Earth. Of course, we do have information. Thus, we can judge places we have never been to and seen with our own eyes. The belief of things we haven’t actually seen are inevitably formed. Today I have round up these questions and thoughts. The visual forms of these works are comparatively simple. There is repetition and expansion of form. They have surpassed the narrow definition of what jewelry is. We can find the element of movement in every form. I want us to observe together, fall deep into thought, and discuss with one another.
 

Artist list

Ji Young Kim
 
It was around this time of year that I once went to see the winter sea. I think I wanted to see the faraway horizon spread freely in front of me, making me feel at ease. However, when I arrived at the seaside, it was cold. It was hard to stand outside while the wind whipped my face. It was at that moment that the person next to me said something. The horizon is like the teeth of a saw.

I thought to myself, What does that mean? How can the horizon be like the teeth of a saw? and looked...
I was quite surprised. I guess I thought of the horizon clouded by my prejudices even while staring at the sea in front of me. When I looked at it properly, it was jagged and sharp. It was because of the wind which I could not see. I was even a bit embarrassed for myself. Was the reason I could not see properly because of my eyesight? Was it because I could not be bothered to due to the cold weather? And I had another question. Had I seen the sea that day? Or had I seen the wind?
 
We live each day with a lot of thoughts in our mind and we become deep in thought even while seeing. It’s dangerous sometimes to see with one’s own point of view. They say to look at things as it is but how can anyone, as a human being, look without judgement?
