This exhibition is a dialogue between artists from Korea and from Berlin working with painting, video art, installation, and performance. As the title suggests, cultural dialogue can often highlight the paradoxes inherent to questions of identity and shifting perspectives. The artists selected for this exhibition, each in their own way, push the boundaries of the expected: from Claudia Chaseling’s spatial painting spilling out of the canvas, to the transfigurative paintings of Milovan Destil Markovic translating a digital language onto his canvases, to the hyperrealist calligraphy of Jang Jaerok, to the meditative emotional journeys of Jihye Park’s and David Krippendorff’s films, to the socially conscious videos of Kira Kim, the zany performances of Zinu Kim, and the 3D animations of Hye Rim Lee. The exhibition will be accompanied by a dual language (english/korean) catalogue. The opening of Station Paradox on 26 January 2018 coincides with the opening of the CTM Festival, also at the Kunstquartier Bethanien.
