Unrealistic World introduces a group of contemporary Korean artists who deal with the issue of constructing realities through digital media, photography and film. The works in the show embody a stunning sense of modernist aesthetic and surrealism, asking viewers to question whether photography and video, which are primarily used to record reality, actually represent it in an accurate sense.
