Seoul's D Museum opens with spectacular light-exhibition
The art-lover folks of Seoul can welcome a brand new hotspot in town, that kicks of with a fittingly spectacular exhibition. The D Museum is an own-standing space, operating under the wings of the Daelim Museum, the key cultural institution of the country dealing with contemporary art. The idea of a separate, more progressive satellite wing was born out of the D Project Space, that has been operating successfully for some time now on Seoul’s downtown “it-street” Dokseodang-ro. Now, just a few blocks away, the D Museum was opened, taking advantage of the neighbourhood’s liberal cultural and artistic vibe, and offering more experimental creative ventures a permanent home.
The museum debuts with an exhibition that reflects its core values well: international artists are brought together to showcase a works made in range of genres from installation to audial art. The title Spatial Illumination - 9 lights in 9 rooms is an apt summary of what is on display. Carlos Cruz-Diez, Erwin Redl, Paul Cocksedge, Flynn Talbot and Russian art conglomerate Tundra, and other leading contemporary artists used light as the base material for their installation, video, design, sound, and sculpture projects.
The works are arranged in a progression, the rooms following each other in a sequence, allowing the audience to experience light gradually. From the simple observer position visitors are led to a complete immersion in sensory experiences, making the exhibition intriguing adventure. In case the complexity and visual language of 9 lights in 9 rooms are indeed programmatic for D Museum, the Seoul audience can expect some real striking artistic ventures in the future.
