As 'Good and Evil' co-exists in inner side of a human, and so do love and violence. Therefore, love in action is a token to show an aspect of natural human being. 'Love', as well as human history, is one of the most important topic. People consider practical seek of love to be a value of life or the meaning of life. What would be the key point of unconditional love that is regarded to be the greatest love? It would be sacrifice. Love that guarantees absolute sacrifice shows a power that overcomes an uncontrollable restrictive condition.

Thus, touch like this love gives soothe hearts of people above any other touches.

 In which channel would this unconditional come from that we consider so noble? It starts with responding sound of pure soul of ourselves, since human has love in inner side from it's birth. On the other hand, the 'darkness' exists in ourselves, which is violence. Violence exposes time to time when conflict based on interest appears.

 No matter of human's rationality, contradictory ideology that appears in contemporary society leads to an emergency of loss to expose ethics or morality based on love emergency that loss. This causes us to head towards instable society. We would like to search the possibility of action in love that is valuable for human by works shown in the exhibition with a concept of 'Love and violence.' 

 On the other hand, we would be asked to reply several questions related to values, meanings and ideas of what it means due to exhibited works. We have a responsibility to answer these demand positively. These is because we know a simple truth that 'love' is premised to achieve true peace and co-existence no matter what happens.
