Crystalline @ ARTECHOUSE
Oct 15 2020 – Jan 3 2021 all-day
Crystalline @ ARTECHOUSE |  |  |

To wrap up this unprecedented year, we’re transforming our three locations into unique expressions of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2020 Classic Blue. From earth to water to air, each location will present a distinct, elemental experience related to the unique qualities of the color. Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit. The new installations seek to do the same; centering our thoughts and fostering resilience.
Inspired by blue’s dependability, “Crystalline” at ARTECHOUSE DC explores the color’s connection with earth and crystals through a journey that is both an adventure and a meditation—an exploration through an illusory, blue-hued castle. Representative of our desire for a stable foundation that often feels out of reach during these turbulent times, this surreal yet familiar place offers guests a refuge from the everyday. Discover creative curiosities in each room as you learn more about your surroundings and yourself. Submerge yourself in the sights, sounds and sensations of Classic Blue.

WHO: Multimedia artist Su Hyun Nam

WHEN: Release: November 6 at 6:00 p.m. | On View: Nov. 6 – 25

WHERE: Virtual Exhibition: KCCDC website at http://washingtondc.korean-culture.org

Artist Talk: KCCDC social media on YouTube and IGTV (@Koreaculturedc)

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly announces K-Art at Home: Su Hyun Nam, the third virtual exhibition of the 2020 Korean Media Art Series featuring works by Korean multimedia artist Su Hyun Nam that reflect the challenges of personal identity amid shifting digital and urban landscapes.

Releasing November 6 on KCCDC social media video platforms, K-Art at Home: Su Hyun Nam will feature five of the artist’s multimedia works—Enacted Scene, Metamorphosis, Woven Milieu, Surrogate Being II, and Dis-integrated Memory—plus a recorded talk by the artist offering an added inside look at her creative themes, process, and inspirations.

Nam’s artwork presents a digitally woven landscape in which the coexistence of people and complex artificial environments is revealed through recompiled observations of city life. The abstracted scenes she portrays appear vaguely familiar at first, even pedestrian—quaint neighborhoods, urban skylines, and solitary trees—yet are distorted by swaths of manipulated pixels or shifting views spliced together. At times these fluctuations recall errors of digital imaging or stream buffering, other times the playful motion of rippling water or a kaleidoscope. Their effect, however, is the same regardless: these visual incongruities reflect our own real conflict with unnatural surroundings and social settings, as well as the challenge of interpreting what we see, particularly for immigrants such as the artist herself. Nam thus visualizes the true nature of an unstable symbiotic relationship between evolving technology, nature, and the identity of human beings living in modern society.

As physical installations, several of Nam’s multifaceted technology works integrate elements of motion capture and view tracking with feedback displays to produce live interactive art that viewers help create; for this virtual exhibition, viewers can experience recorded examples of these processes while Nam demonstrates the interactive components and their artistic significance in her artist talk.

The 2020 Korean Media Art Series allows the public to experience cutting-edge digital art during a time of limited in-person events, highlighting a diversity of works by accomplished Korean multimedia artists.

K-Art at Home: Su Hyun Nam releases on November 6 at 6:00 p.m. with video content on the KCCDC YouTube channel (@Koreaculturedc) and on IGTV(@Koreaculturedc). For complete exhibition information and content links, see the listing on the KCCDC website at http://washingtondc.korean-culture.org.
