Bae has focused on visualizing and recording the laps of time. He explains the laps of time involve duration, repetition, transformation, and circulation. It is continuous, repetitive, and circular.
Through this exploration of time, he has used clay and its nature of material to express the art of the nature's time. Enduring time for good soil, molding and drying the soil properly -- the process of baking at a high temperature and cooling speaks for the circulation of time. Afterwards, in order to maximize the repetitive work of ceramics, the plates made out of soil become a block with a serial number. Putting these blocks together, a continuous act of the artist's circular labor, becomes a record of the artist's internal time. By continuing to work for recording time, Bae invented his own rules of work and followed them. He tried to get a little closer to nature's time. As he gets closer to that time, he is allowed to confirm and face self-existence within the circulating time. This exhibition invites the audience to discover and experience the works of continuation and repetition offered by the artist.
