About

tilted scenes —What do you see?, a pop-up exhibition featuring dynamic works of Korean contemporary art, is held at the Venice Meeting Point (Navy Officer’s Club) near the main exhibition hall of the Arsenale during the opening week of the Venice Biennale (7–11 May 2019). The Venice Meeting Point is a transient platform first launched in 2015 during the opening week of the Venice Biennale in order to promote collaboration among institutions, artists, and experts and provide a locale for international dialogues on contemporary art. Normally used as an exclusive club for navy officers and their families, the venue specially transforms into an art space during the biennale period, marrying contemporary art with the space’s traditional architecture. This year, the club hosts an exhibition proposed by the MMCA and sponsored by the SBS Foundation. tilted scenes —What do you see? features nine contemporary artists representative of Korea—Inhwan Oh, Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho, Ham YangAh, Noh Suntag, Sanghee Song, Minouk Lim, Back Seungwoo, Na Hyun, and mixrice. Inhwan Oh recreates on-site a localized version of his installation piece Where He Meets Him in Venice(2019), while artist duo Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho introduce Freedom Village (2017-2019) along with their new research project on the Korean demilitarized zone. Through works that incorporate the unique regional narrative of Korea, the artists discuss the universality of the invisible aspects that limit our daily endeavors, exploring notions such as nationality, identity, ideology, systems, and regulations. Youn Bummo, director of the MMCA notes, “With the museum marking its 50th anniversary, these exhibitions will be a golden opportunity to introduce the MMCA as well as Korean modern and contemporary art to the audience abroad and to expand the scope of the MMCA’s international network as Asia’s leading art institute,” confidently adding that “the powerful resonance of Yun Hyong-keun’s monochromes and the dynamic works of Korean contemporary art will come across as uniquely appealing to the international audience.”
