SON Sangki and RYU In, each dealt with the theme of "Nanjido" in their own way and captured the times of the 1980s and 1990s. RYU's "Earth-Nanjido" portrays victims who have been sacrificed in a suppressed social structure. The two artists who fiercely contemplated existential conditions during their short life, breathed with the times, and burned their artistic soul, making a big mark in art history.
Shown in this exhibition, is also RYU In's last work that depicts the transformation of a human into a tree, which makes us contemplate and ask fundamental questions about human life and death.
