Cheolwon Chang

Artist-in-residence as part of Accelerate Korea 2017

In his artistic practise, Seould based artist Cheolwon Chang explores notions of symmetry and repetition, questioning what principles lies in an irregular movement that changes and shifts every second.

He was artist in residence in CERN during February 2018.

Cheolwon Chang experiments with the shape of objects as simple 2D forms. In his practise he uses drawings to experiment with the multiple variables of an object unveiling new patterns that are hidden in the first instance. In his work the artist focus on the importance of symmetry and repetition. He looks for a methodology that will help to understand how form becomes visible and he finds inspiration in the world of mathematics, especially around the discussions of non-repetition or infinity, or the hidden patterns that are hidden within the fundamental laws of nature.
