Founded in 2007 artbn is a contemporary art project and management group. Based on all for arts, we are pursuing diversity and differentiation represented in the global era of the 21st century, and are carrying out art projects based on cultural and artistic sensitivity.
artbn contains the meaning of creativity, originality, and beginning.
In 2015 we've opened a new space in the center of the art hub area, Samcheong-dong in Seoul. It is a major area where tradition and modern coexist well, and culture and art consumption are actively developed due to a well-developed floating population and the surrounding the commercial area.
We present a wide array of art projects and exhibitions by artists in many disciplines. Our mission is to promote contemporary art cross-culturally for private and public sectors alike. We also actively encourage a setting to collaborate with other independent curators, galleries, museums, private institutions, and corporate groups.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Jérôme Boutterin solo Exhibition
August 26 wed. - September 25 fri, 2015
After a monochrome series painting, recents works of Jérôme Boutterin seems to revisit the question of gesture in abstract painting. The new series presented in Gallery artbn opposit two different gestures. The first is concentrated and retained which makes a complex surface where we can see all the colors mixed. The second is trace diluted and light which is extracted from this surface and often draw a primitive geometry. It contrasts with the shape informal of the first gesture.
" I want to insist on this event of beginning, an introduction, there is nor a first, second or third chapter to follow. No development to reflect upon. To stay in the moment where things just begin. No preoccupation of what could come next…A collection of paint blemishes, that look like left overs on an artists palette. A place where the colours start to mix and become one, and we think to ourselves. This is great, I can stop here, I can reflect upon this small fragment of a surface. It’s enough.
But, it’s still not quite enough, it’s still not quite there yet. To use this accumulation of multicoloured marks, to use this concentrated state of painterly matter, as if it was a reservoir. To allow its body of paint two or three escape routes. Lightweight, airy these escape routes are alternative beginnings. Something could take place, but this time from a different starting point. The first attempts of a line, the start of a drawing.
Now is possible to escape from this concentrated state of surface using the least material. For this sanctuary of paint it expands to be self-sufficient that utilize its own matter, and become thinner and thinner as the line advances until it dissolves. hat comes away or maybe what returns is within the lines, always the lines. Straight, curved, determined or hesitant. It’s the start of a drawing. owever, this is only a beginning.
This smear. It isn’t really a smear. It is a condensed state of paint that is a deep well of possibilities. t is the origin of the drawing. The lines are extracted from its body. To invert the process: the drawing after the painting. "
