In this exhibition, we will look at the influence of the great invention of the 20th century, the airplane, on us from the perspective of art. Airplanes that experience unprecedented speeds and aerial sensations have changed people's visions in no small measure. In addition, the sophisticated functional beauty of the machine is full of charm as a motif suitable for the new era.
On the other hand, sadly, airplanes have been used in wars from early on. Many of them appear in the war record paintings that have been studied in recent years.
Flying is no longer a special experience for us today. This exhibition will be an opportunity to reconsider the light and shadow that airplanes brought to us through paintings and materials from a time when we had a longing for flight and were surprised.
