An invite and catalogue for artist, Chong Bin Park’s exhibition Inside Outside at the Corn Exchange Gallery, Edinburgh.
The invite is a sheet of folded down, ultra-lightweight, Bible paper printed in one colour. This concept was conceived after
meeting with Chong Bin and gaining insight into the artist’s themes. Rather than concentrating on the literal physicalisation
of the work, I tried to create a piece that was sensitive to the artist’s approach and thinking: pure, honest and evocative.
The catalogue continues to develop the idea of inside/outside and the invisible vulnerability of Chong Bin’s work. It takes
elements from the invite and uses them to explore even more about the artist’s way of thinking. In a similar way to the invite,
the catalogue splits the emotional and the rational information to create more emphasis on the idea of inside and outside
and the invisible vulnerability of the work
The catalogue uses foreshortened, French-folded sheets of lightweight paper to deliver information. The more factual
information is printed on the outside while the more emotive information is printed within the paper’s folds. Variations in
image size and placement coupled with the stock changes between gloss and matt Chromolux create a changing pace
throughout the book, taking the reader on a journey through Chong Bin Park’s work.
