Return to the Limitless

Documentaire sur l'artiste Sud Coréenne Cha Jong-Rye, 2011. Documentary about South Korean artist Cha Jong-Rye, 2011.
Xaos's insight:

Cha Jongrye was born in Daejeon, Korea, a historic province now known as the silicon valley of Korea, but whose name translates to “large field,” harkening back to its simple, organic roots. Those roots in the simplicity of nature are the basis for Jongrye’s monumental works which seem to defy the confines of space and the natural world.

Cha Jongrye works with wood, but not in the way we’re used to. She challenges the material to do more than replicate the frozen recollection of a person, place or thing. Making wood fluid, she reminds the observer of its moment of creation, the organic process before the wood was firmed and placed in the world.

Cha’s works has an earthy sensuality that only hints at the possibly deeper meaning. The surface is a technically masterful manipulation of material; layering delicate wood pieces and sanding them by hand, fusing and grinding wooden slivers, Cha meticulously fits together topographical contours that have no beginning or end.

Cha calls on the ideas of creation, infinity and eternity. The cone shape that is prevalent in her work references birth in nature where a pointed tip bursts through the earth’s surface and continues to reach upward as it grows. It is also a metaphor for the human egoic experience of continually reaching to create more and more, greater and greater as we cement our place in the universe.
