Artist Statement

“I am always interested in the differences between the two. Me and others, two different kind of people, two different personalities in one person. We communicate with each other in our own language because we all agreed to use words with the same meaning. But we also know that it can be wrong. Sometimes we say, “I want something”, although we really don’t want it. Sometimes we say “yes”, while we don’t agree with something. But people don’t seem to mind this difference between inside and outside. I think we communicate with each other in good understanding of this gap. I want to show this dual communication inside and outside, depicting the transparent veil each of us have.”

정말이지너는 You're sur real

D Project Space 구슬모아당구장  /  Seoul, Korea

대림미술관 프로젝트 스페이스 구슬모아 당구장

대림미술관 프로젝트 스페이스 구슬모아 당구장은 2015년 1월 31일부터 3월 8일까지 일러스트레이터 무나씨의 전시 <무나씨 : 정말이지너는 You’re Sur Real>을 선보인다. 2008년부터 꾸준히 간결하고 절제된 흑백의 독특한 드로잉 작업을 해 온 작가는 이번 전시에서 그동안 중요하게 다루어 온 주제인 ‘안과 밖’, ‘나와 타자’, 그리고 그 ‘경계’에 대한 이야기를 풀어낸다.

사람은 누구나 매 순간을 타인과의 관계 속에서 살아간다. 무나씨에게 ‘타인’이란 무의식적으로 아무것도 의도하지 않은 상태에서 스스로 자신의 다양한 자아를 만들게 되는 중요한 요소로 작용해 왔다. 그가 매번 누군가를 만나고 관계를 맺을 때마다 끊임없이 생겨난 새로운 자아는 관계가 사라진다 해도 여전히 ‘또 하나의 나’로 남게 되며, 그렇게 ‘진정한 나’와 ‘타인을 끌어들여 만들어 낸 또 다른 나’의 경계에서 발견하게 되는 것은 결국 ‘나’라는 존재 하나뿐이다. 여기에서 작가는 타자와의 관계 사이의 무의미한 경계를 발견하고 이를 지워나가고자 하는 것이 아니라, 애초에 나와 타자의 경계란 존재하지 않았을지도 모른다고 이야기하고 싶은 것이다. 즉, 내가 곧 타인이고 타인이 곧 나이기도 하다는 주체와 객체를 초월한 ‘무경계’가 결국 ‘무나씨 드로잉’의 가장 중요한 주제다. 

이번 전시 <무나씨: 정말이지너는>에서 작가는 수많은 나와 너의 이미지를 반복과 중첩을 통해 공간적으로 확장시킨다. 이를 통해, 살아가면서 마주치는 수 많은 불특정 타인과의 만남에서 생겨난 다양하게 변형된 자아들 속의 ‘진정한 나’를 찾아 나가는 과정과 그 속에서 겪게 되는 어려움, 답답함을 토로한다. ‘정말이지너는’은 무나씨가 오랜 시간 스스로 던져온 질문이자 자책과 같은 독백임과 동시에, 어쩔 수 없이 함께 할 수밖에 없는 ‘또 하나의 나’와 다름없는 타인에게 공감하고 소통하고자 건네는 깊은 관심과 애정 섞인 불평이다.

D Project Space is pleased to present Moonassi, an illustrator, and his solo exhibition <Moonassi: You’re Sur Real> from 31st January to 8th February. Moonassi has been consistently working on his restrained and sophisticated black and white drawings since 2008. The exhibition highlights the most important and crucial elements of ‘Moonassi drawing’ series; in and out, self and the other and the boundaries between the each.

Every human being is an individual embodiment of social relations. "The other," to Moonassi, has unconsciously been a critical element that creates many different types of ego. Whenever he meets a new person and builds a new relationship with other and even after the end of them, there remain new alter egos. After all, it is only himself left to be found at the border between the real, original himself and the newly created egos of him. Moonassi would like to tell that there even was not a border from the beginning, rather than define the boundaries in the relationships with the others and try to erase the meaningless lines in-between. This shows the heart of Moonassi drawings, “borderless,” which transcends the subject and object and the coordinatization of oneself and the other. 

In this exhibition, <Moonassi: You're Sur Real>, by spatially expanding the images of the various egos through repeating and overlapping, the artist speaks about his journey to find the real himself amongst many alter egos of him that were created from the relationships with the countless and unspecified others, and the hardship and frustration that he faces during that journey. The title of the exhibition, <You're Sur Real> is a question or a self-dialogue-which is almost a self-blame, that the artist has been long throwing to himself, and also a complaint with a great affection that he sends to the others who are ultimately and inevitably another ego of him
