Although the Seoul branch of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) is closed indefinitely due to a surge in daily new cases of Covid-19 in the capital city, there is an exhibition that visitors to the museum’s gardens can view. It is a media art show by col.l.age+, a team of artists Jang Seung-hyo and Kim Yong-min. Their spectacular animated work “Hypnagogia” is projected onto the façade of Jongchinbu, a Joseon-dynasty (1392-1910) building within the museum. In the Joseon period, the building was used as the Office of the Royal Genealogy, which dealt with portraits and other important matters related to former kings and their relatives. On both sides of the building stand video cubes —another artwork from the team titled “Super Nature.” Both the works have the theme of coexistence of nature and human civilization. The exhibition runs through Dec. 27. [MMCA]
