Obscured boundary - Picture vs Picture a photograph? a painting? While Under contemporary art has given an uneasy, but now even fed-up diagnosis of 'crisis of the painting', photograph has gradually expanded its territory, occupying considerable portion in international biennales, art fares, and prominent museums all over the world. Increasing weight given to photograph among recent exhibitions show that Korea is no exception to this tendency. And responses of the spectators on this are interesting. "Is this a photograph? or a painting?" they question, and sometimes marvel at a certain picture. "This is simply a photograph itself!", "Why does he/she take pains to this? Why doesn't he/she rather take photo?" Among these shows and questions we encounter confusion and obscurity that make us again to ask ourselves "If this is a photograph, what painting suppose to be?", or in turn, "If this is a painting, what photograph suppose to be?".

Between painting and photograph what do we get to find out and face up? Here in the midst of all these questions, don't we have to order this chaotic condition and try to understand the meaning of intertwined aspects of that condition? By now, it is about time In what interaction between photograph and painting that obscurity originally aroused and has gotten to increased must be explained, isn't it? This show juxtaposes the painterly showed in pictorialist photographs and the photographic in hyperrealist paintings so that reveal the above said confusion and obscurity occurs between two genres. With this, we'd like to make an issue of the relation between photograph and painting.
