ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The Selby House


Todd Selby from April 27 to October 29, 2017. Through the photographs full of warmth and curiosity and fashionable illustrations, Todd Selby's work intimately portrays creators around the world and the spaces in which they live and work. Selby is renowned for his passion for working with creatives in diverse fields ranging from fashion to design, film, architecture and cooking. His uniquely upbeat, uninhibited works evoke positive energy and provide artistic inspiration amid the monotony of everyday life.

In this exhibition the whole of Daelim Museum, from the entrance to the exhibition spaces and the garden, is transformed into the ‘Selby House.’ Enriched with the artist's sense of humor and irrepressible imagination, 〈The Selby House〉 presents a comprehensive collection of works from his most notable photography series to colorful illustrations, films, and large site-specific installation. Over 230 of Selby's extensive works of photographs include the early images of celebrities’ homes that created a sensation on his blog, theselby.com, and the pictures of studios and kitchens of creative individuals in the fields of fashion and culinary art. Through his intimate perspective, the photos tell compelling stories of the people leading unique lifestyles, capturing scenes from their daily lives and work spaces. The images include Ambika Conroy, a designer who makes clothing from home-raised angora rabbits, Olivier Rousteing, Balmain's youngest designer, Carla Sozzani, mother of Italian fashion and the founder of 10 Corso Como, Hartwood, the restaurant located in the center of Mexican jungle, and Annie Novak, urban farmer who runs a rooftop farm in Brooklyn. The exhibition also introduces Selby as a visual communicator, who constantly searches for ways to connect with the public through his drawings of everyday subjects such as animals, food and nature, infused with his lively personality and energy. Meanwhile, the recreation of the artist's own living room, bedroom and studio provides a glimpse of the Selby’s lifestyle, where his creative outputs are born. Upstairs in the Jungle Room, the artist's childhood dreams and memories come together in an explosion of captivating energy.

The works of Todd Selby incorporate the spaces and lifestyles of individuals working in myriad fields, while also sharing bundles of stories derived from the artist's own experience. With the touch of his unique artistic style, familiar mediums, such as photography and illustration, brim with fun and joy. Inspired by the encounters and relationships formed in everyday life, the artist constantly develops his own visual language in an attempt to actively engage and intimately communicate with the general public. A place full of whimsical thoughts and freewheeling lifestyle 〈The Selby House〉 welcomes visitors and transforms ordinary moments into extraordinary.
