Explained

Sulki and Min, Explained (Suwon: Specter Press, 2017), published in conjunction with the exhibition Sulki and Min: Perigee 060421–170513 (Perigee Gallery, Seoul, 2017). Korean and English editions, offset printing, sewn paperback binding, page size 105 x 150 mm, 160 pp.

Explained presents verbal-only explanations of more than 200 projects from the career of graphic designers Sulki and Min. If a work of art is not to be explained but to be experienced, then this book proposes a reversal of the adage: if we don’t need an explanation in order to appreciate a work, can we appreciate the explanation without the work?
