Flo Maak (DE, 1980) takes nature as his model and ecology as the focus of his study. He builds tableaux of frosted glass plates and large-scale photographs, sometimes exhibiting the installations, other times showing large photographs documenting their creation.
Most Beautiful, 2016
Most Beautiful features workers who are invisible yet perform a task that is essential to us all: ensuring the cleanliness of the roads. After several meetings with the cleaning teams from the city of Vitry-sur-Seine near Paris, Kyungwoo Chun suggested something very new: that they close their eyes and draw the person whom they most missed during their working time. The resulting piece comprises a montage in which each drawing is shown next to photographs of a hand wearing a glove. The hand is both what directs the working tool and what serves to reveal each individual’s free, poetic spirit through this artistic commission.
Most Beautiful reflects the personal experience of each participant but also partake in the process of highlighting human relations, an area that Kyungwoo Chun tirelessly explores in his work. The project has been realized during the artist in residence at Macval- Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne.
