Art Sonje Center presents Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho's new exhibition Seoul Weather Station from August 30 to November 20, 2022.
Seoul Weather Station is an exhibition that uses artistic imagination and interdisciplinary cooperation as part of a multifaceted approach to the rapid environmental changes that have come about through global weather phenomena and natural disasters.
Historically, humankind has viewed nature simply as something to be conquered. But the environmental crises that have become visible these days—climate destruction, ravaged biodiversity, pollution, and so forth—send the clear message that the old perspective no longer is valid. Under these circumstances, art should be capable of exploring nature, the environment, and the Earth in new ways—and of suggesting different approaches that shift us away from the previous perspectives. This exhibition was conceived as a temporary “weather station” that observes issues related to our climate environment from new and varied angles, while forecasting alternative possibilities for the future.
