TRUE TRUTH by Sookoon Ang explores transcendental experiences through abstractions and minimalism. The center of the exhibition is a triptych video installation which breaks down a landscape of sky, forest and lake into 3 disjointed textures. Also within the same space is a series of ceramic sculptures passing off as abstract colour field paintings; each devoid of obvious subject matter. This new collection of artworks produced in different mediums seeks to represent enigmatic forms.

The exhibition shifts between two and three dimensional forms with objects passing from light to obscurity, opacity to translucency, suggests ideas of the instability of existence, variable perceptions as well as space within space. Through pared language, the artworks demonstrate metaphysical concepts and sublimity where absence is employed to redefine presence, void evokes vastness, materiality transforms into immateriality.

The titles of the artworks offers poetic suggestions, hinting latent emotions within the sparse visual expression. The exhibition also acts as an antinomy to a time-obsessed culture by offering a decelerated space, almost to a stand-still. Through its minimalist and abstract language, it also deviates from rapid and loaded imagery of modern communication.
