Studio 525 is pleased to present Fifth World Problems, an exhibition bringing together the works of artists James Clar and Matthew Schreiber.
The "Fifth World" refers to a fictional inter-dimensional plane of existence that contains bizarre life forms, philosophies, physics and other anomalies. Fifth World Problems, a play on the concept of 'First World Problems' deals with the frustrations of living in alternate dimensions, rather than the actuality of the monotonous present. 'Fifth World Problems,' the term invented on Reddit, one of the most successful forum communities on the internet, is reimagined in the exhibition as cosmology turned reality.
The works presented by James Clar and Matthew Schreiber contemplate the reality altering medium of light and technology systems, questioning whether the experiences and problems of one world or plane of existence is essentially the same as another.
This specific invitation to the two artists stems from their use of various mediums at the intersection of technology, light and space; attempts to question what the immediate state of experience of space is in our distracted oversaturated environments.
The exhibition presents an installation by Matthew Schreiber rarely experienced in NewYork. Guilloche2019, part of an on going series since 2005, treats laser light as sculpture. Geometric Guilloche patterns are commonly seen in holographic anti-counterfeiting measures and the Spirograph toy developed in the late 1960’s.

Gallery Bundo is pleased to have Red Sansu, a solo exhibition of the artist, Sea Hyun Lee. He is well-known for his landscape paintings in red ('Red Sansu'), which is finished with oil painting on a canvas-covered with a linen cloth. His landscape work conveys the artist’s message to viewers as a reality and idea entangles. The artist was born in Geoje Island and traveled back and forth between the island and Tongyeong. The circular images of the sea and the porch he had always seen in his youth are reflected into the composition of his red paintings. Ever since he decided to become a painter, he moved to Busan and Seoul consecutively and received art education at Hongik University, Seoul. His college years in 1980s were full of social upheavals, and the metaphors of his social criticism in paintings were shaped during this time period.
