an event, and another event

Upon entering the exhibition hall, we are met by a scene resembling an archaeology dig opposite a white wall. A collection of digging tools and tongs have been scattered across the mustard yellow dirt ground. Who is behind this? What and why are they excavating? The space behind the glass wall, where human trails can be found, invites all kinds of wild expectations and imaginative hypotheses. This space, which has transformed the museum into a stage, is a site for performance. Performance, which is a genre that has risen in popularity in the contemporary art scene, is an all-inclusive genre that expands the boundaries of art by using various media and free forms of physical expression. Seoul Museum of Art has picked performance as the theme behind this year’s exhibition…

an architectural experiment as a pavilion

The exhibition ‘Pavilion Laboratory’ was on display at Domansa, in Seongsu-dong, Seoul, between Aug. 28 to Oct. 31. The theme of this exhibition was the architect’s pavilion, explored through works such as Lifethings (principal, Yang Sooin), NAMELESS Architecture (co-principals, Na Unchung, Yoo Sorae), stpmj (co-principals, Lee Seungteak, Lim Mijung), and SoA (co-principals, Kang Yerin, Lee Chihoon, Park Youngseo). This exhibition focuses on architectural experiments conducted through the form of the pavilion, rather than introducing the plans through which pavilions were created and run. Lifethings introduced Gyroid Trefoil located in Seongsu-dong, Seoul. The work was guided by the concept of an intersecting ‘gyroid’ structure, which is a three-dimensional curved surface that is infinitely connected, and a ‘tripol’ known as a three-leaf knot. More than 5,000 modules were derived from the adjustment of…

unfamiliar figures made of familiar objects and stories

The ‘MMCA Hyundai Motor Series 2020: Haegue Yang – O2 & H2O’ has been on show at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Seoul since Sep. 29. Yang is the central figure in this year’s annual exhibition, which highlights the notable Korean artist, a visual artist based in Berlin, Germany. Creating installation works that use materials encountered in everyday life, she scrutinises major contemporary themes such as migration, tradition, globalisation, and war. The title of this exhibition, ‘O2 & H2O’, is identical to the title of her solo exhibition held in Germany in 2002. Yang said that the title was conceived in the sense of air and water crossing each other’s boundaries according to changes in temperature. It is a title that expresses her way of…

nature blooming and falling at your fingertips

Flowers, butterflies, animals, waves, and topographical contours have been embroidered across the walls, floor, and ceiling of the exhibition hall at low illumination. When you approach and touch the wall on which a deer appears to be walking, the deer slowly disappears with a sound, and the fish swimming in the water moves away if you touch it with your feet. Even though a giant flower taller than a human fills the walls of the exhibition hall, it withers over time to sprout up again. This is the mercurial space of ‘teamLab: LIFE’, an exhibition about the power and cycles of life. This exhibition is composed of interactive art works by the media art group, team-Lab. TeamLab, founded in Japan in 2001, is made up of 400 professionals from around the…

enjoying an exhibition with your dog

Recently, the number of people living with companion animals has increased significantly. The question of whether one owns a dog or cat was even included in a recent Population and Housing Census. Under these circumstances, from Sep. 4 to Oct. 25, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Seoul opened ‘Museum for All, Museum for Dogs’, inviting dogs in particular to enter their spaces, which account for the largest percentage of companion animals in Korea. This exhibition is the first domestic exhibition to invite dogs as part of its audience. Sung Yonghee (curator, MMCA) who curated this exhibition explained that ‘our social awareness has improved quite a lot as we use the expression of companions rather than pets, but we have a long way to go as there…

the first step towards an all-inclusive museum

Seoul Museum of History organised an online conference titled ‘A Museum for Everyone’ on Oct. 8. In response to the prevailing trend in the expansion of museums in terms of their functions and roles, this was an opportunity for professionals in the field to discuss the concrete methods to make Seoul Museum of History. Beginning with a welcome speech from the Bae Hyunsook (director, Seoul Museum of History), the conference featured a keynote address and presentations on architecture, visual communications design, and museum case studies research. The first presenter Kim Insoon (department of head, Universal Design Environment of Korea Disabled People’s Development Institute) presented on the aspects one must consider when designing a museum’s physical environment in terms of its topography, form, accessibility, and architecture, particularly as Korea transforms into a…
