A selection of works by the Korean artist
Jazoo is a Korean artist who lives and works in Beijing and Seoul. She uses her paintings and installations to document other’s solitude, often in interesting ways. Her paintings, which she creates by using brushes or knifes, are usually not finished, so that the surface becomes the infinite space for her.
Jazoo has exhibited in numerous galleries in Seoul, at the Sang-sang International Art Museum, Beijing and had a solo exhibition at the Kunstraum Bethanien, Berlin this year.
Read more about her work below the images.

“I use my actual body for my works with minimum-using tools like a brush and a knife. There is the mixture of finger-painting and action-painting. It immerses myself in the act of painting like a trance. Further more it takes various sincere emotions out of my unconscious. The act of painting means the work of harmonizing body and mind for me. The immersion to that brings my energy, ‘ki(氣, chinese character)’ out. The aim of my works is to make infinite space on a limited plane. ‘A dot, a line and a face’ holding my ‘ki’ has continuous movement. I make them to extend into that infinite space.
I also pay attention to the painting itself. A true painting has the characteristic of material like run-down, sprinkled, sticked, crumbled and scratched. The movement of a painter, the pace of a work and the intensity of emotion are found from that characteristic. To make the most of material’s characteristic become the process to release my characteristic and freedom. The completion means the end so I just explode my energy, never complete my painting. After pouring my momentary energy to my canvas, I just leave it as it is. As a result, the fixed and limited plane surface becomes the infinite space. ‘A dot, a line and a face’ holding my energy infinitely extend to the space by themselves.”

On-going series done in various locations in Europe by one of the best emerging Italian artists
In 2010 Minelli started taking photos of smoke-bombs in romantic landscapes to juxtapose the beauty of nature with the violence of a medium devoted to create chaos with a stunning result. These powerful images, taken in various areas around Europe, had been featured in Art exhibitions like the Venice Biennale, published in various magazines and got a lot of visibility thanks to many Art and Design-related websites.
About Filippo Minelli
“Filippo Minelli forces the occasional viewer of his artworks, and the people fond of his artworks too, to an intellectual gym, stimulating scratching contrasts in our minds. Following conceptual tendences, Minelli pursues a non-objectual dimension of Arts searching relations between the work of art and reality, with culture and social behaviours [...]. In Minelli’s interventions is investigated the theme of Arts as writing with a resolute “interventist” urge which charges the artist’s action with social-disobedience, instigating the viewer against the superficial and the commercial and cultural deadness of contemporary society. Sometimes Minelli organizes his interventions in series which evolve during the years.
The second essential element of the artistic production of Filippo Minelli is photography as a narration of the installations. Reflecting Walter Benjamin’s precepts, the point of view of the artist uses photography as a way to tell a story. The work of art is presented tracing contrasts and inconsistences between the location choosen and the linguistic-conceptual contribution. Language and image coincide in the photograph, gragging along conscious and sub-conscious thoughts.”
