SARA CWYNAR : ROSE GOLD
Oct 1 - Nov 11, 2018
Cwynar’s film Rose Gold (2017) focuses on Apple’s Rose Gold iPhone, tracking how the phone acts as a talisman of desire for objects, people, power, and money. Released in September 2015, the Rose Gold iPhone was already outdated during the film’s production – superseded by the perpetual release of newer and more advanced models. Thus, in 2018, the Rose Gold iPhone is already a relic, an anachronistic icon that epitomises the successes and speed of modern technology, which leaves even the most recent of inventions behind in order to keep reincarnating, updating, improving.
 
The film considers how individuals — the artist as one of its protagonists – negotiate complicated feelings of love and hate for commercial objects and how features, such as 3D Touch, resonate directly with the user’s emotions and imagination.

HUN KYU KIM : EIGHT UNIVERSES AND THE MACHINE
Nov 15 - Dec 16, 2018
The Approach is delighted to present Eight Universes and The Machine, the first solo exhibition in the UK by South Korean artist Hun Kyu Kim.
Working in the aesthetic tradition of Korean silk painting, Kim crafts precise allegorical pictures, employing a range of both political, contemporary, and art-historical references and influences. Through his skilled application of oriental painting, Kim builds intricate stories about an imaginary world. Yet this fictional world becomes an analogy for Kim’s interpretation and reflections on the very real recent political situation in South Korea and its startling transformation since a stamping out of a corrupt regime.
