Busan Biennale 2016- Exhibition ‘Hybridizing Earth, Discussing Multitude’

Factory to Multi-Cultural Complex

Initiated with the voluntary participation of local artists in Busan, the Busan Biennale 2016 just finished a journey of presenting works of 121 participated artists from 23 countries at both Busan Museum of Art and F1963. Exhibition ‘an/other avant-garde china-japan-korea’ at Busan Museum of Art introduced forgotten avant-garde art in art history of China, Japan, and Korea from the 1960s to 1980s. Project ‘Hybridizing Earth, Discussing Multitude’ at F1963 constituted a rich biennale-specific exhibition in experiments on other forms of biennale and its spatial diversity. A former wire factory, built in 1963 and remained empty since 2008 due to relocating the facilities to other places, was finally regenerated as a multi-cultural complex. Unlike the other reconstructed architecture that completely lost its history visually or conceptually and dominated by so-called modernized effect, the presence of the old F1963 under the theme of biennale looked nearly ‘untouched’ with the the value of conservation and recycling. Two distinctly different nature of factory and art exhibition space were fused through the embodiment of the exhibition concept, ‘Hybridizing Earth, Discussing Multitude.’
