the beauty of traditional patterns

The annual ‘Sulwhasoo Culture Exhibition’ is now on show at the Atrium in the Amorepacific Headquarters, selecting different themes and socially expanding upon the traditional value and understanding of beauty. This year, the exhibition ‘Micro-Sense: A House of Pattern’, a modern interpretation of traditional Korean patterns, opened to provide an opportunity to explore the relationship between conventional living culture and craft. Following the red pattern acrosss the flying white cloth at the entrance of the pavilion, a very strange living room welcomes visitors. A high-rise space that cannot be recognised from outside the gallery unfolds, and the furniture and dresses with colourful patterns catch visitors’ eyes. The red pattern that fills the entire living room is a reinterpretation of the flowers, butterflies and birds in the Ten-panel Folding Screen (hojeobdo). All…

on what it means to be art today

Overseen by National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) and funded by Hyundai Motor Company, the MMCA Hyundai Motor Series is a project that selects an artist each year to support and promote his or her work both locally and internationally. Park Chan-kyong was selected this year with his private exhibition ‘Gathering’ at MMCA. Observing the themes of division, the cold war, folk tradition, religion, and East Asian modernity, Park has exhibited his works of varied media, ranging from video, installation, photography, and text. He questions what a gathering, solidarity, or community mean in this era, in which disasters like the Sewol Ferry disaster and the Fukushima Nuclear disaster have become commonplace and Netflix has become common. In addition, he questions what is means be an art object, an artist,…

dongdaemun design plaza becomes a giant canvas

This winter the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) will become a vast projection screen blending sound and imagery. The Seoul Metropolitan Government and Seoul Design Foundation has announced plans for ‘DDP LIGHT’, a new annual festival of lights that will take place at year’s end and us this landmark facility as a media façade. The goal is to put the event on the map as a nocturnal destination for tourists from around the world, and as a platform for media artists, both domestic and international. This year, the theme for the new event is “SEOUL HAEMONG (dream interpretation),” which will showcase the evolution of Dongdaemun over time and visually interrogate relevant details of the greater city of Seoul.

five houses as a yard for the residents

An archival exhibition, ‘Opening The Artist’s Home’, was held in the old house of the artist Choi Manlin, which has now been transformed into a public art museum for residents.

a gallery corridor becomes a runway

An otherwise tranquil Jeongdong-gil was illuminated by countless bright lights and filled with a star-studded flurry of activity for one night only. On Nov. 4, the Hermès F/W 2019 Menswear Collection took centre-stage at the Seoul Museum of Art. The museum is a renovation project of 2002, occupying the Old Supreme Court Building, and housing within it an impressive void spanning three stories. The corridors and staircases surrounding this space were turned into a runway for Hermès, translating its show ‘Walk the Line’ through this dynamic spatial configuration. This was the first menswear event hosted by Hermès in Seoul, and was overseen by Véronique Nichanian (artistic director, Hermès’ Men’s Universe). Hermès has routinely chosen eccentric locations to reveal its men’s line: an abandoned post office in London; the former Kak Tai airport…

seoul responds to the number of unoccupied homes

The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is working hard to put the rapidly increasing numbers of vacant homes to good use, coordinating its efforts through policy and institutional foundations. At the beginning of this year, it founded the Department of Vacant Homes under the Seoul Housing & Communities Corporation, which oversees the project, and more recently it set out an overarching database of these homes, as a ‘Bank for empty houses’. On Oct. 28, a symposium on urban renewal and the use of unoccupied homes became a part of these efforts to publicise the programme’s achievements thus far and to benchmark case studies from abroad. The symposium’s first speaker was Nam Junghyun (director-general, SMG) who pointed to new towns and the designation and subsequent cancellation of areas for redevelopment as the cause…
