A never ending look into Haein Temple


“Emptiness IX” by artist Zu Do-yang gives viewers a whole new view of the famous Haein Temple’s main building, Daejeokgwangjeon. The artist created the work by combining more than 70 photos of the interior he took from various angles, so the works form a Mandala-like image that conveys a sense of infinity.

“[In Buddhist philosophy,] there is neither eternity nor unchangeable essence,” the artist explained in a note about the series’ title.

“Everything changes; accordingly there is a hole in the place where eternity and unchangeable essence were supposed to exist: the hole is emptiness.”

This is one of 15 pieces in Zu’s “Emptiness” series now on view as the artist’s solo show which runs through March 9 at Keumsan Gallery, central Seoul.
