playing in the era of the image

The image of the sea fills the eyes as if it is a blazing fire. Each element, such as a pink sky, a navy sea, an island left as blackened outlines, and clouds of fire-scored shapes, is multicoloured as if all elements have intentionally elevated their contrasting elements. When the door is opened, a scene that is somewhat rough, familiar, and intriguing unfolds. It is difficult to find a connection between these images, such as a cigarette butt enlarged to the size of a person, a temple in Bangkok at sunset, and a grave where an animal companion is buried. It is visually interesting, but the question is never answered even when you ‘open the door’. These are part of Tobias Rehberger’s installation series, which are also ambiguously titled Something…

the election as a platform for contemporary art

The 21st legislative election has now concluded but various printouts, including campaign bulletins, posters, ballot papers, and banners, still remain. They are stored in the Archives of the National Election Commission (NEC) as historical sources that will represent our era. Election slogans such as ‘Protect the People’ that emphasised ‘successful’ control of COVID-19, and ‘Fighting Korea’ which focused on the act of ‘judging the current regime’, will also be recorded for posterity. ‘The Better Man 1948 – 2020: Pick Your Representative for the National Assembly’, co-hosted by Ilmin Museum of Art and the NEC, is an exhibition that draws on the legacy of past elections. The exhibition looks at the system named election as a scene of competition and conflict, and as a ‘social drama’ where various performances take place. It…

a pillar that is not a pillar

The solo exhibition of Jonggeon Lee, entitled ‘Three pillars and a wall’, who has been producing sculptural and installation work based on the contemplation of architecture and space, opened on Apr. 9 at PIBI Gallery. In this second solo exhibition, Jonggeon Lee focuses on the fundamental aspects of architecture, such as Three pillars and a wall, by exploring his fixation on the ‘properties of flexible space’. In the exhibition hall, which can be seen at a glance, three pillars and a wall, as the title suggests, are installed with tension. Using the existing pillar, which was already placed inside the exhibition hall, as a motif, the artist presents pillars and walls as deviating from their actual functions and uses as universal materials. The existing pillar is covered with a sliced veneer…

a sensuous rediscovery of white

‘White Rhapsody’, an exhibition focusing only on gradations of white, has been on show at the Wooran Foundation since Apr. 1. Until now, white has held traditional and ethnic connotations such as ‘the white-clad folk’ or ‘white porcelain’. However, this exhibition intends to break away from these intuitive associations with white. It introduces ten new works by five artists born in the 1970s and 1980s who regard white as something close to daily life, and which they can experience in reality and closely related to an industrial aesthetic. When one enters the gallery, objects, installations, and photographs designed by Chung Isak (professor, Dongyang University) have been installed all over the terraced structure. At one end of the staircase, there are the ceramics of Ju Sekyun. Objects of various sizes and shapes,…

the city before and after covid-19

On Mar. 31, the Korea Planning Association (KPA) held a policy seminar on the theme of the ‘City and Infectious Diseases’. The seminar was designed to look back at the relationship between urban planning and infectious diseases, in order to seek advisable directions for urban management in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. The event was broadcast live on YouTube. For the first session, Oh Miae (researcher, Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs) presented ‘The Use of Big Data in the Healthcare to Respond to Urban Epidemics’. First of all, Oh examined the national trends perpetuated by COVID-19 through big data analysis. She collected search data related to ‘COVID-19’ and reorganised the data by time series by applying the amount of time series buzz, related terms, and network analysis methods.…

aik holds the second architecture conference on covid-19 countermeasures

The Architectural Institute of Korea (AIK) held the second architecture conference at the Architecture Center in Seocho-gu, Seoul, on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 on Mar. 31. Following the first round-table conference on Mar. 24, the event was held in order to set up specific measures and guidelines applicable to educational facilities. Giving a presentation in the first section, Shin Dongchun (professor, Yonsei University) outlined the situation at home and abroad based on COVID-19’s reproductive number and speed of transmission. He explained that the new infectious disease can spread in asymptomatic or mild cases, and the reproductive number, which means the number of secondary infections generated from one infected individual, is higher than for MERS or SARS.
