In Bong-Chae Son’s light boxes, five polycarbonate panes backlit by LED form a whole painting where the protagonists are trees. The title of the exhibition is Migrations. A migration is an action which requires to abandon one’s own roots, it is a brutal interruption of the attachment to the soil: Bong-Chae Son paints with lightness, abstracting from the violence of this breaking-off, the pain of migrations.
