SomoS Art House presents the work of two young South Korean artists, Kang Dasom and Cho Hyun Soo. The event is part of a new Korean residency cooperation between Keum Art Projects, SomoS, and the Changwon National University in South Korea.


The one-day presentation gives an overview of the work the two artists have produced during their stay at SomoS.


Cho Hyun Soo combines painting techniques informed by the rich Korean history with contemporary experimental elements, such as collage. Her paintings depict bamboo, exploring and modernizing the formative beauty of Korean arts, focusing on the symbolism found in the traditional Four Gracious Plants genre.

Kang Dasom's preferred media are painting and sculpture. Her current project is focused on the themes of digital life and companion animals, both substituting human relations, in a society fixated on technology and economic values.

Kunsthaus SomoS freut sich, die Arbeiten den südkoreanischen Künstlerinnen Kang Dasom (Malerei und Skulptur) und Cho Hyun Soo (Malerei) präsentieren zu können. Gezeigt werden Arbeiten, die während eines einmonatigen Berlin-Aufenthalts der Künstlerinnen entstanden sind. Die Veranstaltung ist der Auftakt einer neuen Kollaboration zwischen Keum Art Projects, SomoS und der Changwon National University in Changwon, Südkorea.

Cho Hyun Soo nimmt Themen aus der reichen koreanische Tradition der Malerei auf und verbindet diese mit aktuellen Strömungen, wobei verschiedene Materialien überraschend kombiniert werden.

Kang Dasom, Malerei und SkulpturDie Basis ihrer Arbeiten fundiert auf der Frage nach dem Wert und der Würde des Lebens. „Das Kapital steht im Zentrum und die Werte sind universal geworden. Das Leben verliert seinen Wert“, sagt Kang Dasom über ihren künstlerischen Ausgangspunkt.

Anastasia Leonova

Anastasia Leonova comes to Berlin from Ukraine for a six month curatorial residency. Intensive networking and research will lead towards her final exhibition project that will explore what it means to be a local artist operating in a globalized and interconnected culture, especially in Berlin, a city renowned for the international scope and texture of its creative community.

Leonova’s final exhibition will involve a select group of artists with photo and video works that in some way point to their identity in flux and between places, at once global and local, familiar and foreign. The exhibition opens on Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 in SomoS exhibition space.

Feb 8 – Scope Sessions #71: Ali M. Demirel + Bahadir Hamdemir - Join us on Thursday February 8th for the first Scope Sessions at SomoS featuring engaging talks from forward-thinking artists and creatives working with technology, this time with Ali M. Demirel + Bahadir Hamdemir giving short presentations on their work. Since 2011, Scope has been a meeting point for the creative and the curious, and a platform for sharing and learning in an informal setting, with a focus is on intermedia arts and technologies.

Feb 15 – Todd Reece Johnson: Treading Water - In his work, Johnson employs inventive experimental analogue techniques to investigate the malleability of the photographic image. The photographs in this series have been taken along Berlin’s various canals and lakes; subsequently the developed film is submerged in the water itself where the photo was taken. This intimate relationship with the landscape allows the film to transform, mutate and decay over varying durations of time.
