Fine art photographer BHANG Youngmoon invites viewers to contemplate the nature of perception
Through his latest series of abstract photographs,
fine art photographer BHANG Youngmoon invites viewers
to contemplate the nature of perception and consciousness.
Drawing inspiration from Buddhist teachings and philosophy, BHANG Youngmoon explores the complex interplay between recognition and non-recognition, being and nothingness, and existence and absence. His works offer a unique perspective on the way our cognition forms tautological correspondence structures, while also challenging the limits of logical and scientific reasoning.
At the core of BHANG Youngmoon's photography lies a tension between reductive structures and the desire to go beyond them. While his works are based on a kind of reductive structure, BHANG Youngmoon is not a reductionist. Instead, he sees consciousness and mind as beginning with the principle of a new layer formed by a complex system beyond the critical point. By temporarily suspending the act of recognition, his art aims to offer a new way of looking at the world, one that goes beyond conventional modes of understanding.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is BHANG Youngmoon's series titled <Contemplative Contemplation - the sense of suññata>, offering a unique and thought-provoking perspective on the concept of nibbāna (nirvana).
