Rama Lama Ding Dong is a head-on collision between two artistic approaches – a chance encounter between painter MeeNa Park and designer Jackson Hong, taking its title from the words of an American rock'n'roll song.
Atelier Hermès presents the first temporary collaboration between two young Korean artists – a fun, experimental offering commissioned by curator Sung Won Kim.
Divided into three distinct phases, the new show explores the confrontation and cross-fertilization of two different artistic approaches: that of painter MeeNa Park, and former car designer Jackson Hong.
Both artists employ digital media, using the same software to blend their works to create an original, shared, co-signed body of work.
MeeNa Park draws on the virtual imagery of computer games, and the forms and colours of computer typefaces, to create so-called "dingbat" paintings. Jackson Hong deconstructs the results, translating them into three-dimensional objects for Park's painterly interpretation: images not of cars but car crashes, making any design approach anti-functional.
The large-scale installation is a joyous calvalcade of objects, animals and human cut-outs in coloured Plexiglass, traversing the Atelier's space, seemingly accompanying an enormous white cube, and a soundtrack played on a portable radio. On the walls, an equally lively array of pictures seems to observe and take part…
Rama Lama Ding Dong is a transdisciplinary work based on duality, paradox, irony and the fusion of disparate techniques. A joyous Pop experience that questions the roles of the fine and applied arts.
