‘Hiding Inside the Light’ showcases a body of work that instigate to uncover on one hand the many layers to explore and appreciate the beauty of something which is absolutely mundane and on the other hand it strives to investigate and understand hidden truths. Individual works carry traces of everyday events that look like memories of dreams linked together having surreal qualities. This exhibition explores various themes of Ho Suk’s practice that is a reflection on Korean society’s past and present. His subject matter is divers and includes his own family, political and religious figures, common people and flora and fauna indigenous to Korea.

Ho-suk’s every series displayed at the National Gallery of Modern Art presents his thought process and development over the years. Ho-suk has developed his individualistic approach by using traditional Korean paper ‘Hanji’ and Korean traditional ink and most works of art in this exhibition are presented without a frame and hence the exhibition has its own rooted appeal and the intellectual and emotional inputs that Ho Suk has brought to his works offers a thought – provoking choice.
