(UN)NECESSARIES: Solo Exhibition by Sang Taek Oh
TAKSU Singapore, 4 – 25 July 2013
TAKSU Singapore is proud to present (un)Necessaries, the first solo exhibition by Korean artist Sang Taek Oh in Singapore. In the (un)Necessaries series, the artist has intentionally created surrealistic space with photography. The relationship between the outline of the clothes and the black background in each photograph translates to a painterly effect that may appear as oriental to the viewer. Through the artist’s way of approaching the concept, viewers can be attracted to the oriental beauty and gain new perspectives through the inspiration of his concept of an indispensable human desire.
SANG TAEK OH (b.1970, Korea) has delivered affirmative messages in photography through his gradually progressed series of works. He studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (B.F.A) and San Francisco Art Institute in the United States (M.F.A). The works of Sang Taek Oh has been exhibited extensively in Korea and worldwide, including China, US, and Canada. He was a recipient of an artist residency at National art studio, Goyang and Seoul City Art Studio, Nanji, one of the most prestigious residency programmes in Korea. Also, he has received awards from renowned foundations and museums in Korea, such as, SEMA (Seoul Museum of Art) Awards 2010 and he has established his collections in Korea’s major museums: National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul Museum of Art and Museum of Art Seoul National University. He currently lives and working as a Professor in Seoul Art Institute, Korea.
