Daelim opens new museum in Yongsan
Now the museum has opened a new branch, called D Museum, on Dokseodang-ro in Yongsan District.
The Dokseodang area has been getting more attention from real estate experts in recent years as more hip boutiques, restaurants and cafes open on the street, which is adjacent to the Itaewon strip and Gyeongridan-gil.
In the second room is London-based Australian designer Flynn Talbot’s work “Primary.” In the dark, light of changing primary colors is projected on a triangular sculpture covered with many smaller triangular pyramids. It creates numerous different abstract painting-like images depending on the time and angle.
In the eighth room is “CMYK Corner, CMYK Wall” by the Netherlands-based German designer Dennis Parren. This work consists of not only metal sculptures but also the LED lights on them and the resulting shadows.
