G-DRAGON, “I Like Pretty Women & Clothes… Exhibition Roots From Simple Ideas”
[????? = ?? ??] BIGBANG’s G-DRAGON expressed his feelings on becoming the center of an exhibition.
GD was present at the press conference at the Seoul Museum of Art for his exhibition titled “PEACEMINUSONE: Beyond the Stage.”
GD commented, “When I announced the launch of my exhibition many had questions and curiosity for it. I am a musician and a pop artist. Until now I have been collaborating with various artists in the realm of music to fulfill what I do not have with what they have, creating this sense of synergy. I would like to use this opportunity to collaborate with artists in the realm of visual art to have an exhibition that crosses over to contemporary art from the genre of music.”
“I would like to be the bridge to introduce domestic artists to the public who are not familiar with art or who find art unapproachable.”
“Working with the South Korean artists was particularly meaningful as I was able to learn so much about what I don’t know, widening my perspective.”
“I have this huge fantasy about beauty. Clothes, women, and music. Pretty things make me happy. The exhibition rooted from simple thoughts like these.”
The title “PEACEMINUSONE: Beyond the Stage” is another name for the world that GD imagines—he idealizes PEACE but lives in a world deficient (MINUS) of it. It is the difference (ONE) between reality and the ideal world.
The exhibition displays a total of 200 artwork including sculpture, installation, photographs and painting work that were born from the artistic solidarity formed between GD and the artists. The exhibition will be held overseas as well, going from Seoul to Shanghai, Singapore and more, to be introduced to international audience.
