Two Strange Picnics

Two Strange Picnics | Insuk Kwon
8-21 May 2024

Now on: a captivating exhibition titled ‘Two Strange Picnics’ by Korean artist Insuk Kwon. This exhibition offers a comprehensive view of her works, encompassing chaotic early pieces reflecting her war-like daily life when she first moved to the UK eight years ago to recent pieces that express her isolated self within contrasting cultures. Visitors can expect to encounter unique pieces that transcend the boundaries between paintings and 3D miniatures.

In her artwork, Kwon skillfully portrays various objects, all of which hold personal significance to her and may resonate deeply with the British audience, in a format reminiscent of still life but with a touch of surrealism. While the scenes depicted in her works may capture everyday landscapes, there’s an underlying sense of peculiarity that is sure to intrigue viewers.

Kwon was born in and built her career as an artist in South Korea. Some of her works were recognised and shown in France and Italy. Now she is based in London. Her works particularly focus on small and trivial things from everyday life which are scattered on the stage, inspiring people to imagine the stories behind each of them.
