TINGKY
2022.9.2 - 9.24

Emotions are inherently magical.
Emotive qualities transform a world of pragmatism into one of captivation.

from Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980)

Tingky is an artist who pays attention to the various 'emotions' felt in everyday episodes. Most of the things she experiences are caused by emotions and desires such as joy, sorrow, love, hate and anger. And emotions constitute the landscape of her mental and social life. She believes that emotions are the energy to preserve her existence, and that bad and passive emotions can be overcome through stronger, more joyful and active emotions.

Based on the philosophy of emotion, Tingky created a unique character, 'Kaekumi', with unique and playful humor and wit. Kaekumi dreams of happiness, hope and freedom in a finite and absurd life. It is a symbol of freedom to decide and act on its own feelings and desires. And as an active being in life, it is sometimes even heroic. Tingky reveals a different side of the world that could not be known through Reason, through Kaekumi and the magical powers of emotions. Influenced by the colors and utopian worldview of American and Japanese animations in the 2000s, she delightfully portrays that utopia is something that can be found in practical life.
