    introduction

MULTI-ARTS PROJECT Ⅱ - Annyeong! Hello!

This first summer at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, we invite you to Multi-Arts Project Ⅱ entitled “Annyeong! Hello!”. ‘Annyeong! Hello!’ is a friendly greeting by the museum to you all and by you to the museum. The key concepts behind this project consisting of five subprojects mainly of performances are ‘encounter,’ ‘hospitality,’ and ‘orgy’. Not only in Multi-Project Hall but throughout the inside of the museum as well are presented a variety of creative attitudes and experiments dealing with sound and music, the body and movements, a space and a space, and vision and moving images. Each and every project and performance are to be shown for the first time at MMCA Seoul. Comprised of a contemplation on the space of MMCA Seoul, a live performance vis-à-vis a horror film, a weird, curious audio-guide and a live performance, a screening and a talk show, a procession to transform MMCA Seoul into a magical space, this project is the Museum’s ambitious and exciting endeavor to come together with you by welcomingly entertain you with an artistic orgy. We hope for your interest and support.

Participating Artists

《Equal black hole screening– Video Relay Taansan》
Video Relay Taansan is a video screening program established by young artists in 2012. It is devised as a channel to promote exchange and mutual support among young artists themselves. For each Video Relay Taansan those artists who participated previously select the participants for the following years and introduce their works. “There is a common denominator among those young artists who make video works: their files are light-weighted, but there are not many places where they can be shown. How great would it be if there are as many and as diverse channels to show our video works as in the case of films, which are shown in many domestic film festivals? Many different competitions require the submission of the five or less minute version of one’s work. When fortunately selected for a group show, one needs to compromise his or her work in terms of light or sound so that his or her work does not disturb other works exhibited nearby. After all, it may not be untrue that the distribution and circulation of video works are to some extent the responsibilities of young artists themselves.” From the introductory text of Video Relay Taansan. equal black hole screening is a new event introduced by Video Relay Taansan in 2014. Kim Lee Park, Jiyoung Lee, and Sea Jung Kwon, the three participants in this program plans to lay out equally the references used during the processes of their art-makings, those bold plans that came out of chaos, waste articles that they had hidden away, and their final outcomes and then to reassemble them in front of the audience. This is to reinforce the attitude of Video Relay Taansan to approach to the audience in the way they treat their colleagues. They are hoping that people would come to see their works with the same amount of curiosity as they would to the screenings of trash films * The detailed information on the 3rd Taansan is available at http://taansan.net.

Participating Artists

- Kim Lee Park
Kim Lee Park has often felt frustrated by neighbors’ unexpected behaviors as he tended the tiny garden in front of his house with devotion. This made Kim who is a florist and artist to start to think about in juxtaposition the life of the urbanites in Seoul and his small garden.

- Jiyoung Lee
Jiyoung Lee looks into what conditions humans and the details of life by actively involving herself in the cruelties and absurdities of reality, by reenacting various reclusive, self-confined lifestyles, and by taking part in bizarre eccentricities.

- Sea Jung Kwon
Sea Jung Kwon is interested in how different things are be able to have mutually independent relationships with one another. Kwon reveals the conflicts within the communities in cities and makes works that can contribute to the construction of spaces lacking smoothness and to the formation of uncomfortable relationships.


《Hypermetamorphosis Theatres 1. 2. 3.》
Hypermetamorphosis is a medical term pertaining to one of the symptoms of Klüver–Bucy syndrome. It is characterized by the difficulty to interpret the given visual information in an integrative manner in relation to one’s own experience in spite of having the ability to obtain visual information. It refers to the psychic blindness caused by the discrepancy between the obtained visual information and the process of understanding it. Pahng Hae-Jin who curated Hypermetamorphosis Theatres conceives an art museum as an arena for contemporary art as a theatre where this tendency called ‘hypermetamorphosis’ is developing. For Pahng an art museum is a place at once where an immeasurable amount of visual information is being formulated and sensed and where there occur a constant discrepancy between the given information and the interpretation of its meaning on the part of the visitors who receive it either positively or negatively. Diagnosing the interpretative diversity that typifies contemporary art as a sign of hypermetamorphosis and setting up the museum where it is shown as a theatre, Pahng proposes three ‘Hypermetamorphosis Theatre’ projects: Hypermetamorphosis Theatre 1 is focused on the element of the body; 2 is based on the factor of sound; 3 is video media-based. These three projects offer one an experience of unusual situations of the discrepancy between one’s visual experience and his or her understanding of it that occur in the environment of a museum.


 <Hypermetamorphosis Theatre 1. Shapeless Museum>
What kind of performance can a dancer give in an art gallery that cannot accommodate a world of one-point and fixed perspective like a conventional stage? Despite that the museum may hold too many memories of dance performances already, it would still be worthwhile to inquire into the one that responds directly to the particular way of viewing that an art exhibition space demands the oversaturation of one’s perception. Hence, Jung Youngdoo, a top choreographer and dancer of Korea’s contemporary dance scene, contemplates on the museum through the discontinuous and multiple simultaneous movements that cannot be grasped by a single look. Shapeless Museum starts with an exploration of MMCA Seoul’s space obscuring a countless number of edges and unexpected corners. Via a choreographic design correspondent to this multiplicative polyhedral space, the performance intends to enable momentary encounters between the body and the space. It will be carried out in the way not only to cast light on the museum as both a ‘grave of objects’ and a ‘space of hierarchy’ but also to summon what MMCA Seoul is currently hiding behind its fiesta of technology—that is, the historical memories imprinted on its site. The title of this performance derives from the fact that MMCA Seoul was designed under the concept of a ‘shapeless museum’—rather than under the objective to emphasize its being. An art museum urges one to perceive some things in an exhibition it presents, yet it is undeniable that there are certain shapeless beings and objects in it. This performance pays attention to the states those shapeless being and objects are in. Five performers do the performance simultaneously but at different locations in the museum. This performance finally comes into being when it empowers what are present in the museum but are not the objects of ‘viewing’ such as the museum’s walls and the air inside to establish themselves as the objects to be seen or the subjects who perform.

<Hypermetamorphosis Theatre 2. Theatre of Blindness>
One’s viewing of artworks at an art museum tends, in a sense, to be dependent on the texts on the explanatory panels provided by the museum rather than being based on his or her own visual experiences. In order to overcome the high wall of contemporary art, one views exhibitions and the artworks shown at them with the help of texts explaining them. This project starts by posing a question to such a circumstance. At a museum where a visual adventure is supposed to take place one covers his or her eyes and directs more attention to the given explanations. Theatre of Blindness has two parts. Based on the idea that an audio guide after all functions to provide narratives that help the concretization of the ambiguous visual information reflected on retina, one of them entitled “Extended Audio Guide” attempts to extend the possibilities inherent in it. It aims to build a theatre of invisible landscapes throughout the museum by creating ruptures in the texts of the existing audio guide and by giving back their voices to those objects that are excluded from the category of the exhibits or those spaces by which one simply passes to arrive at his or her destinations. In another part of Theatre of Blindness entitled “Live Performance,” which is loosely connected with “Extended Audio Guide” emphasis is attached to the force of the performer’s pure voice itself. As the performer repeatedly appears in one’s view and disappears from his or her view by moving in-between the audience at three to five kilometers per hour, his invisible voice three-dimensionalizes the non-functional spaces of the museum into aesthetic objects.

- Extended Audio Guide : August 20 (Wed.) to August 23 (Sat.)

- Performance : Corridor outside Gallery 5 /  August 22 (Fri.) 5 p.m. & August 23 (Sat.) 5 p.m.

<Hypermetamorphosis Theatre 3. Avoided Names Under the Hard Skin>
Avoided Names Under the Hard Skin, a media performance is a moving image-based performance which is reconstructed on the basis of ideas on the horror movies that are frequently featured during the summer season. What element of a horror film stirs up the emotion of fear in one’s mind? What are the essential features that constitute a horror movie? As an answer to these questions, this project concerns the fact that one of the sources of fear is related to the merging and separating of the body and the sound. This project where the moving images on the screen and the acts on the stage are operated at the same time produces an uncanny live cinema by utilizing what is called ‘mise en abyme,’ which refers to a story within a story within a story or a picture within a picture within a picture.On the screen are seen scenes of the daily life of an actress. Talking about the film in which she starred, the actress says that a man who died of an infectious disease in the film is visiting her. The actress and the man recall the scenes of the film together and the actress becomes aware of that she has caught the same disease. In the film that starts again after their deaths things are not as they remember them. By appropriating the intrinsic attributes of mise en abyme such as representative reflection, infinite reflection, and paradoxical reflection, this performance materializes the disturbance of the double relationship between what is seen to what sees. In other words, the intent of this project lies in the rediscovery of the dislocation of perception and the relation of meaning hidden in reality.

《Spectral Rite》
Through the aural and visual act of the procession, Spectral Rite explores the architectural condition and the institutional environment of MMCA Seoul. Berlin-based performance duo HYENAZ incarnate as androgynous celestial beings, beautiful monsters, hybrid street peddlers and warriors for justice. Their presence evokes remote yet acquainted spaces in East and West, archaic and future tenses, as they appear within the MMCA as familiar strangers. The procession is guided by an analytic approach to the architecture of MMCA Seoul, and implies contemplations around the destiny of a space which could rupture into another field of parallel time that is both history and future. Embodying the primitivism of the procession, Spectral Rite configures an idealist sphere within the architecture of the museum born from a critical vision of reality. The museum will become a space of hospitality towards social and political outsiders, with the intention of pushing back against a schizophrenic, neoliberalist conservatism that apparently encroaches on our current globe. HYENAZ will present four musical compositions with lyrics in Korean exclusively composed for Spectral Rite. Each station in the procession is connected by movement transitions and atmospherically sung language. Reacting to the condition of mobility during the procession, the geometry of each costume is embedded with a variety of inventive solutions for acoustic and digital sound experimentation. The pseudo-instruments recall shamanistic tools, weapons of war, futuristic media machines and recognizably mimic existing instruments. In Spectral Rite, the voice suggests a pre-linguistic phase of sound, and attempts to overcome language-centered systems as well as the impossibility of translation. The movement visualizes a yearning for a unified hybrid of gender, histories and spaces. Spectral Rite is a wedding of physical bodies and the architecture of the museum. As warriors, HYENAZ intend to prevail over apathy and daily complacency of consumerist and institutionalized city life.Introducing the sense of primitivism where physical and conceptual borders of subjects were less apparent, Spectral Rite studies a mode of communication that extends beyond the autistic experiment of a mad person, not excluding immediate experiences of a possible community balancing between the institution, artists and viewers of different background.
