Title: For Jackpot to Create Jackpot (Jung King, Pop Artist)
Jung King, Pop Artist
Q, Please tell us about yourself and your exhibition.
Hello, my name is Jung King.
I am a pop artist who works with different objet, painting, and media, to work around the topic: “Life Is fun”.
For this exhibition, I’m trying to communicate with people about rather difficult stories about the society and individuals through various characters.
If you take a look, some of them are colorful, while others are not. Each of them are different with different elements.
You know how music and poetry also have implications...
If you such messages, you’ll be able to understand what pop art is and communicate on many different levels.
Q. Can you tell us about the topic of this exhibition?
I have subtopics under the big umbrella, ‘Life is fun’, and if you look at the paintings, you’ll see X marks.
Usually, the sign X conveys something negative: if could be personal complex or a stigma. Life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to work out.
But we should have fun in trying to resolve them, rather than trying to compete against them. X symbolizes having fun trying to solve the difficulties in our lives.
This time, I have something called the Jackpot Series.
By jackpot, I mean great luck and infinite potential that comes from within self rather than from the outside. Through Jackpot Series, I wanted to tell people to explode energy and possibilities.
If you observe this series, you will see jackpot in the middle of the character.
Jackpot symbolizes great luck and potential that lies within oneself. They don’t come from the outside world. People already have jackpots within, and they should ‘hit the jackpot’.
I hope the audience will realize great jackpots within themselves as they view my work.
Q, Can you tells us about this work?
This work is the representative work for the Jackpot Series, and it’s called ‘Bounce in the Beginning’.
It may sound very alien, but it shows my interpretation of the Creation as described in the book of Genesis.
If you look, Adam and Eve are surfing, and here are the fruit and the serpent.
When humans are first created, our heart beats very rhythmically.
But as we live on, our lives become so standardized and regulated, we often forget to see how fun it can be. I wanted to challenge that with this work.
As these people evolve, they are already bouncing. And these jackpot families are getting ready to hit the jackpot.
If you view these media-connected works in a sequence, people are dancing in various ways, as they evolve from anthropoids to space travelers.
You can see them hitting the jackpot. And I hope my audience will bounce along together. Thank you.
