White is a deep, absolute silence, full of possibility. Black is nothingness without possibility, an eternal silence without hope, and corresponds with death.“

Concerning the Spiritual Art, 1912, Kandinsky

Fragments presents a selection of different series by Korean artist Jungho Jung. Articulated around a triptych, The State of All Things, Jung’s abstract visual explorations delve into different forms of the element water. From his wanderings into snowfields, around water dams and wonderings about his inner self, his practice is concerned with the tension between the visible and invisible, between being and nothingness.

While the microscopic environment inside an ice cube contains the fragment of a wider universe, Jung is concerned with the space between inner and outer where the real infiltrates the imaginary. In this in-between, black and white resonate ad infinitum like two consistently entities that could not, however, exist without one another. Fragments alludes to this intense silence where being and nothing coalesce.
