Artist Kwon Ji-an, also known as singer Solbi, will be holding her first solo show in a year and four months, her agency MAP Crew announced on Friday.

According to the agency, its new exhibition titled “Paradise – Capture of the Ordinary” will be held from September 29 to November 22 at Vila Vila Cola, a cultural multiplex located in Siheung, Gyeonggi, showcasing 20 works including new creations.

Kwon held his last solo show “Real Reality” last year, showcasing his talent as an artist to the public.

She was chosen for the Gana art residency this year after being the only Korean artist invited to the world festival of contemporary art Nuit Blanche Paris in Paris last October. The artwork “Palette Garden” that Kwon created during the residency sold for 9.2 million won ($ 7,900) at an auction in Seoul earlier this year.

Although having been sold, “Palette Garden” (2020) will be on display at the exhibition, alongside some of his new works such as “Snow, Water (Winter)” (2020), “Where Will I Be? ( Autumn) “(2020) and” Until the day we meet again (spring) “(2020).

All of the works feature images of flowers, which Kwon says were due to his father’s influence.

“She once asked her father why he loved flowers so much,” the agency said. “He was told ‘Because they’re still here’ and it made him think ‘What things are still there in a constantly changing world?'”

Kwon said in a press release that “The works in this exhibition capture the ordinary moments, not the most beautiful moments.

“I wish this day, a very ordinary and simple day, to be ‘Heaven’ for everyone.”
