ECLIPSE Invitational Exhibition

Asking questions about existence at the borderline Pondering while looking at the sea in the dark: Where does this darkness come from? This exhibition is a duo project of Daniel Huete and Natthaya Thaidecha. It begins with the ontological research of the artists who are facing their intrinsic, traumatic memories through the photographic medium. Daniel visits the place where his mother was buried, to face the trauma of her death. Natthaya, who fears deep water, jumps into the sea. In the dark sea, the artists grasp memories about death and uncertainty, about pain and fears that remain in their subconscious. Daniel and Natthaya take photographs that would hold memories, and in return, their work reflects an emotional state based on their self-consciousness. The artists reflect their experiences and memories through images and are raising their voices by connecting people and things that exist in different times and places in an organically as a single voice. Their journey to find identity is expressed in dreamlike metaphoric images. Against this background, symbolizing “momentary darkness”. It also stands for the inseparable continuity of life/death as a cycle and the light found within the darkness representing hope.

경계에 서서 존재에 대해 물음을 던지다

검은 어둠에서 바다를 바라보며 생각한다. 이 어둠은 어디에서 비롯되는가?

본 전시는 다니엘 웨테(Daniel Huete)와 나탸야 타이대차(Natthaya Thaidecha)의 공동 프로젝트로 카메라를 통해 자신에게 내재된 트라우마적 기억을 마주하는 작가들의 존재론적 탐구에서 시작된다.

다니엘은 어릴 때 돌아가신 어머니의 죽음에 대한 트라우마를 마주하기 위해 어머니가 묻힌 곳을 방문하고 물에 대한 공포를 가진 나탸야는 바다에 뛰어든다. 두 작가는 검은 어둠의 바다에서 잠재의식 속에 남아있는 죽음에 대한 기억, 고통과 두려움에 대한 불확실성을 포착하고 투쟁한다.

카메라로 순간의 기억을 머금는 작품들은 작가들의 자아의식을 바탕으로 정서적ㆍ감정적 상태를 반영한다. 두 작가의 경험과 기억이 투영된 이미지를 통해 각기 다른 시공간에서 존재한 사람과 피사체들이 유기적으로 연결되어 하나의 목소리를 내고 있다. 그들의 자아 정체성을 찾아가는 여정은 메타포적인 방식을 통해 몽환적인 이미지로 표현하였다.

이와 같이 이클립스(Eclipse)는 ‘일시적인 어둠’을  나타내며 어둠이 걷힌 후, 새로운 빛의 발견을 의미한다. 이는 순환의 질서 안에서 삶과 죽음은 이원화되지 않는 연속성을 상징하며 어둠의 끝에서 발견한 빛은 희망적 메시지를 담고 있다.
