August 13 – September 10, 2016
The 4th exhibition of APMAP part I, which were previously held in Osan, Jeju, and Yongin, will be shown at two locations in Seoul:
Yongsan Family Park and the construction site of AMOREPACIFIC’s new headquarters.
Whilst mediating three main components with art;the past-present- future of Yongsan, the two exhibition sites,
and nature-metropolis- human, this last exhibition of APMAP part I is expected to extend discourse on ‘public art.’
In 1992, the City of Seoul transformed a part of the U.S. military base in Yongsan, which was established after the Korean War, into the Yongsan Family Park. The thirty six year old building of AMOREPACIFIC’s headquarters was demolished for its new building whose constructions is to be finished in early 2018.
The objective of make link lies in the conceptual bridging of the two places focusing on the past-present-future of Yongsan District and in the active communication of various elements such as cities-nature-people through works of art. The participating artists have visited the venues for a numerous times for related information so as to explore their ideas and create site-specific works, which have been installed throughout the venues: 14 works at the Yongsan Family Park; 3 at the AMOREPACIFIC Headquarters Site. Being enabled to interact with the works that speak to their senses, visitors function as subjects who formulate multilayered connections.
