An exhibition in a fashion company retail space, mixing fine art and design works. Each artist has been paired with one writer who conceived a short text (“instruction”) accompanying the artwork. This approach reminded me of the Autosave exhibition at Common Center. This mental link also provided a trajectory upon which artists moved: From a hip fashionable underground space to the hip fashionable showrooms of Apgujeong fashion boutiques. These two spaces which could not be more different seemed to perfectly complement each other. In this exhibition everything was beautifully designed and prepared to the smallest detail, including a beautiful loose page postcard size catalog.
