Ob.scene 5


Ob.scene 5, 2016. Commissioned for the exhibition Void at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, 12 October 2016–5 February 2017. Site-specific, mixed-media installation, dimensions undefined. Co-authored with Hyun-Suk Seo and Seong Hee Kim.

Ob.scene is a performing arts journal focused on the “things out of the stage.” Published as part of the exhibition Void at the MMCA Seoul, the fifth issue is unfolded – performed – in the physical space rather than on printed pages. Instead of reading a book in hand, the reader is guided to visit the twenty “pages” set up on various spots in the museum, empathetically experiencing the space while listening to the prepared sound or gazing upon some unexpected installations. The reader is invited to create solitude moments for oneself in the busy museum, and to meditate on the past memories still lingering around the site.
