ABSTRACT

The archive of modern West Europe has functioned as the evidence justifying its historical and scientific project which reduced contingent events to a continuous chronological system of measurable and homogeneous time. And photography has been the main effective medium in realizing the project. But it is failed by the artistic practice of a Korean artist Kang Hong-Goo. In his series of photo-paintings, Underprint(2015), Kang performs ‘overdrawing’ on the misunderstood referentiality of photographic index. His practice of supplementary overdrawing becomes a political one of ‘redrawing the archive’ of modern Western Europe through making ‘the margin’ of East Asian traditional literati painting present, which is generated by medial overlapping of photography and painting, ironical variation of photographic indexicality, and re-arrangement of condensing the gap of para-archaeological space-time.
