55th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia
Curated by Seungduk Kim
Organized by ARKO (Arts Council Korea)
The ARKO selection committee decided last August to commission Seungduk Kim to be?the curator of the Korean Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di?Venezia 2013
"Traditionally, la Biennale di Venezia exhibits artists hosted by their countries of origin in national pavilions. Rather like in World Expos, I wanted the Korean Pavilion itself to be the focus : the pavilion hosts an environment designed by an artist.The architecture of the Korean Pavilion is a metallic structure with glass, wide-open to the luminous laguna and surrounded by tall trees. decided to invite Kimsooja, a Korean-born artist self-exiled to New York, and internationally acclaimed for her video works and installations, to transformthe Korean Pavilion into a space of special experience for the visitors. Amoment of light, colors, and in a black hole".
