Bohnchang Koo : ‘White’ Series (Photography)

::

Bohnchang’s work has always dealt with impermanence, with the decay and disappearance of living things. In his recent work, Koo continues this long journey to capture the fleeting and the mortal. In these spare natural landscapes—the sea, pine needles on snow, dust on a wall, withered vines —the artist renders scenes of exquisite beauty while evoking the inexorable passage of time.

“Koo photographs images of the fragile and the fleeting, never the immortal, of distance and solitude, never attachment or survival. An object gets old from use, remaining indifferent to artistic intention and control, attentive only to its own unerring interior progression, which leaves its disappearing traces long after the photo has been taken, thus moving its past into the future. And thus artist and spectator, who exist outside the photo and cannot enter it, must wander as strangers. From the initial choice of subject, loss is inevitable… Destiny‘s fleeting object, disappearance and sadness of life even before life ever was, returns to silence. In this fleeting is splendor, refinement and beauty.” H Kim
