Tang Contemporary Art, Hong Kong presents the solo exhibition of Woo Kukwon, a promising artist from Korea. The artist has worked on paintings and installations focusing on the growth of human self-consciousness from his debut exhibition The Rainbow Connection (2009) to I’m your father (2021), his last exhibition where he re-examined his father’s works from the son’s point of view. In the current exhibition at Tang Contemporary Art, Woo explores his autobiographical growth and self-transformation through paintings depicting ancient Carnival ceremonies with iconic characters from fairytales and mythologies.
