About Exhibition



“Figures take shape insofar as we can recognize, in passing discourse, something that has been read, heard, felt. The figure is outlined (like a sign) and memorable (like an image or a tale).”
— Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments

100ft. PARK is pleased to present “MYOPIA”, installation by Jae Hyun Lim between January 17 – February 17, 2015, investigating human behavior under the intervention of temporary spatial setting on street level.

“MYOPIA” is a journey into the act of narrow-mindedness shaped by seeing our mind and body brought to its stillness.

The project begins with a spatial condition of transparent glass wall that separates two spaces; a gallery and street. Pedestrians often simply pass by the gallery. They notice something occasionally but not enough to change the course of their journey so they simply continue.

The objective here is to divert this pattern of relationship using the wall as a means of interacting with the streetscape. The intervention functions as a mediator that facilitates a scene in which our body becomes a part of performance of “seeing” or “being seen”.

The installation consists of a reflector, viewfinder, and reticle. Each element is brought together as a moment in space. The temporal nature of the installation is contrasted to their resolute stillness as objects, suggesting that what is presented here is merely a single instant from a multitude of unknown and variable scenes.

As we get closer to “MYOPIA” our body gradually adjusts itself to the stillness of the installation. Our perceptual sense increases as our movement becomes still; we become a part of the scene by mimicking its silence and immobility in an attempt to gain understanding of the totality of it all.

To see is to surrender
To observe is to suspend…
