GALLERY: Media City Seoul installation part 2

1 Sep

Installation continues at Seoul Museum of Art in anticipation of this weekend’s VIP/Press preview and Monday’s public opening.  It’s interesting to see the progress of various galleries in the museum.

Nearly all the photography installations are up, and lighting adjustments are underway to ensure the best conditions for viewing.  Installation pieces, such as those by Izumi Taro, Xijing Men, and Mark Bradford’s painting are in a constant state of progress.  Izumi’s installation, which documents his life in Seoul over the course of 10 days, is of particular note in this regard.  Sumitomo Fumihiko, a curator for the exhibition, said that the piece will be under constant transformation and revision up until the VIP/Press opening on Saturday.

Video works are mostly waiting for projectors, screens, TV displays, to be installed and set up by the installation staff.  I presume these will be the last pieces to be finished before the opening.

Find photos below of Shilpa Gupta’s Singing Cloud and Untitled, Izumi Taro’s installation piece, Xijing Men’s piece, Yangachi’s video installation, and the structure that will house the first stage of Blast Theory’s interactive piece, Ulrike and Eamon Compliant.

Enjoy!
