Tragicomedy

Painting Installation
2018

Sang Woo Kim's Tragicomedy installation of paintings of comic figures in dramatic poses in a field of flowers signify togetherness in a ‘tragicomedic’ manner.

The figures may be viewed light-heartedly or melancholically due to the expressions or dramatised poses, juxtaposed by the bright and colourful backgrounds and comic figures intwined with th 'Coach Signature' at the heart or the face of the characters.

The flowers are a catalyst to the series as they represent celebration but also commiseration. At the start of the show, flourishing with life and colour, the flowers celebrate the work on the walls with bright energy and optimisim, however as the exhibition comes to a close they will eventually wilt and die.

The flowers will reflect on the artworks with melancholy and sadness as the poses change from ‘dancing’ to ‘dying’ completely juxtaposing the way the work is viewed.

What a tragedy!
