a bizarre landscape of physical devices

Interspersed throughout a steel frame are lightbulbs that flicker; a speaker tolls a call that rings like a bell at regular intervals; traditional Korean doors and translucent glass panels and wood; and objects that appear to be manufactured by a 3D printer are placed. It all seems haphazard and pique the visitor’s senses. These have been aggregated into three groups with massive screens that showcase graphic displays above, while a view of Dosan-daero and its traffic flows play out beyond the glass windows below—a scene that reality and virtual reality meet and merge as one, ‘Variable Scape’. On show at the Hyundai Motorstudio Seoul until Feb. 29, the show is co-hosted by Hyundai Motorstudio and Ars Electronica as a global art project that involves the work of eighteen artist groups. It…

pushing the boundaries of perception

The participatory exhibition, ‘LEANDRO ERLICH: Both Sides Now’, opened on Dec. 17 last year, at the Buk Seoul Museum of Art. Leandro Erlich is an Argentinian installation artist, who utilizes optical illusions formed by materials’ reflective surfaces to thwart the viewer’s expectations. It is his first domestic show in five years since exhibiting the Hanjin Shipping The Box Project (2014) at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and features his other famous projects alongside artworks he has created for this show. While Leandro Erlich’s past works have explored the boundaries between material reality and fantasy, truth and falsehood, and ultimately cast doubt on visual reality, this show experiments with the boundaries between the viewer and others. The View (1997) is a video installation that allows viewers to peek from…

when trams trundled along seoul’s streets

To mark the 120-year anniversary of the introduction of trams in Seoul, the Seoul Museum of History and the Korea Electric Power Corporation are jointly hosting an exhibition titled ‘The Tram of Seoul’. The show revisits the 70-year history of trams to consider how the vehicles impacted the city’s structure and citizens’ life. It comprises three separate sections that each mark different periods of time. The first section shows the early stages of the trams’ inception. Founded in 1987 by King Gojong, the Hanseong Electric Company signed a turnkey contract with the Collbran-Bostwick Development Company that made the latter responsible for designing, installing and operating the city’s tram system. All this can be observed in the photographs, letters and copies of contracts displayed throughout the section. After tracks were laid throughout…

100 years of korean art magazines

Today, you can attain information immediately with only the touch of a finger or the click of a mouse. More people are moving to mobile-based online media such as social media and YouTube. Some people still prefer the sense of turning over pages of a crisp newspaper and press-printed letters, but print media has now become a medium of a preference, rather than of necessity. Numerous domestic and international magazines have been forced to shift from monthly magazines to bimonthly magazines then back to quarterly magazines, soon to be discontinued. Today, magazines seem to be peripheral to the epoch, but now there is an ongoing exhibition that explores the significant 100 year history of the magazines. ‘R e a ding A r t through Kore a n A r t Magazines’…
