The exhibition A cosmic encounter shows currents works from Justin Jun, Rini Mitr, Hye Ji Nam and Ye-In Yi. Together, the artists research the representation of the library as an artistic space and create the relation in-between an artistic project and the site-specific features.
Justin Jun, born in 1990 in South Korea, studies Contextual Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Justin Jun?s work investigates the human relationship in the theme park, architecture and space in the form of intermediately drawing, painting and sculpture.
Rini Mitr, born in 1984 in Jamalpur/Bangladesh, studied at the Fine Arts Institute at the University of Dhaka and currently studying Contextual Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Rini Mitr?s works emerge from her own self-understanding which eventually reveals her surroundings. In her paintings she describes the power of the human body and discovers the relation of its inside and outside. She is in constant discussion with what is (non) visually present and absent.
