Objets d’art showing our daily life in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This exhibition 'Irregular Rhythm' presents works by seven artists who are based on metal crafts, under the theme of ‘unforeseen rhythm caused by COVID-19.’ The seven artists express their rhythms visually in today’s pandemic situation and try to enhance the public’s understanding of metal crafts by showing the process of their thinking in which their language is created. The series of processes in which dots become lines and lines turn into planes and planes form a single shape is a common feature of their plastic arts and in their work, they each create a different dimension of space through this repetitive cycle and contrast the rhythm of daily life with abnormal rhythms. In addition, they introduce crafts that actively embrace social messages through a spatial composition that implies not only COVID-19 but also the background of even larger crises that perhaps we overlook.
 
Objets d’art that create an aesthetic value and harbor an abstract meaning of life beyond their function.
Contemporary works of art must embrace some intangible values that serve as various meanings and representations into their tangible values that hold physical functions. The result of craftsmanship is also an object that contains both function and aesthetic value. A series of changes caused by COVID-19 have not only simply brought physical changes, but have also changed the way in which artists view the world and the attitude in which they think about their work. In addition, it has altered the methods and orders of creative activities and the type of labor gradually and sometimes transformed the subjects and forms of works totally. The seven artists of the exhibition will lead such variations of life rhythm to the development and novelty of their work.
 
Modeling of repetition: interpretation of life through the cycle of repetition.
COVID-19 destroys the rhythm of the graph that is constantly repeated in our lives and composes a rhythm that draws a completely new curve. In particular, for us who carry out artistic activities, it has cracked rhythms of our creative activities, which had been made up with stable repetitive actions, and has forced us to set us on new tracks. Just as the regular and irregular rhythms of life make a cycle in coexistence, the process of a craftsperson creating something with their hands is also a succession of repetitions(rhythms). The dots and lines in repetitive rhythms (as in our daily life before COVID-19) produce various shapes by being mixed with unstable rhythms and form a new space. Through this series of processes, artists fill a space with their own rhythms.
