[Korea Joongang Daily] ALTERNATIVE DREAMS
Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Jung District
To Feb. 5: The unique exhibition explores the links between the Korean art heritage represented by Kansong Art Museum’s collection and Nam June Paik (1932-2006), dubbed the Korean-born father of the world’s video art, opened last week. Paik’s video installation “Rabbit Inhabits the Moon” is presented alongside 19th-century painter Jang Seungeop’s painting “Dog Barks at the Moon under the Empress Tree.”
The 18th-century painter Sim Sa-jeong’s “Road to Shu Scroll,” an 8.2-meter-long (26.9-foot-long) ink painting that leads viewers on a journey throughout an idealized landscape, is on display together with Paik’s video installation “Elephant Cart.”
The museum is closed on Monday. Go to Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station, line Nos. 2, 4 and 5, exits 1 and 2.
