Photography is Magic! showcases the playful and experimental aspects of photography. The title of the main exhibit of 2012 Daegu Photo Biennale, Photography is Magic! highlights the alchemy of photographic creation and effect, outstanding hand skills, chance and transformation, thereby disclosing the essential elements of its identity. Twenty-nine artists participating in the Biennale offer appropriate answers to the fundamental question of the original versus the new characteristics of a photograph. Emphasizing the uniqueness of photography in contemporary art, this exhibit zooms in on the materiality of photography. The works, which juxtapose the visual and plastic idioms as seen in modern sculpture or installation art, probe into an object or material entity that is derived from a photographic image common to our times, while at the same time re-assessing the uniqueness of the physicality of a photograph. 20 september - 28 october 2012
