Dual-Use is a symbol of reality which has been installed in the current society through technology that satisfies multiple target values at the same time. It is also a concept that has penetrated deep into our lives.
Dual-Use, comprising the presentations of 4 media artists’ about their society, begins with the questions each artist asks on existence in such relationships as materiality and immateriality, imagination (or virtual reality) and reality, past and present, etc. These questions take the form of monologues. These monological questions will resurge as waves of endless questions like pebbles thrown in the water to create concentric ripples. Through this exhibition, the audience will discover waves of double-edged sword in Korea’s DMZ, Lenin’s head, structure where virtual body and form are in conflict, and repeated conscious symbols, which are Dual-Use of the artists.
