Dates: 11 MAY 2019 - 24 NOV 2019
Venue: Korean Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, Giardini, Venice, Italy
The exhibition《History Has Failed Us, but No Matter》curated by Hyunjin Kim, for the Korean Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale, showcases the work of three women artists: siren eun young jung, Jane Jin Kaisen, and Hwayeon Nam. Each artist reconstructs East Asian modernity through a rubric of research, developing their practices using critical reflection based on a strong gender consciousness as they delve into both the present and parse the history surrounding the modernization of Korea and East Asia. The various narratives presented by these three artists weave formally complex compositions of mesmerizing sound, color, lights, rhythm and organically curve-shaped architectural installations, alongside alluring movements of the plural body to vigorously explore the heterogeneous narratives of the history of East Asian modernization.
