Special Exhibition of 2021 ASEAN-ROK Culture Innovation Summit Encounters - World Beyond Encounters - World Beyond, a special exhibition of 2021 ASEAN-ROK Culture Innovation Summit, introduces works by three media artists representing the Republic of Korea, Vietnam, and Singapore, as well as the Summit archives. The title of the exhibition ‘encounters’ embodies the objectives of the summit: to propose an innovative vision through the diverse cultural exchanges that are taking place every day between the citizens of Korea and ASEAN member states. This exhibition, which is being held for the second time following its first iteration, titled Encounters in 2020, asks questions about the non-materialization of modern art, which is rapidly increasing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It also asks how societies and their peoples can meet and work together in an age characterized by anxiety and uncertainty through the works of three artists who use technology- based media, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and holograms. In this way, the pieces adhere to the Summit's theme, “Korean-ASEAN Thriving Together through Culture and Technology.”

‘Breath’ by Korea’s Anna Kim is a live simulation project based on data that render a virtual environment in real time using local weather and air quality index (AQI) data. The artificial environment that reflects the current atmospheric conditions in real time combines virtual and real environments. The virtual reality (VR) created by the artist depicts a forest reminiscent of a primeval forest. The forest may be rainy or cloudy depending on current external atmospheric conditions. Abnormal phenomena begin to appear in the virtual forest when the concentrations of particulate matter and AQI outside the exhibition hall rise above standard values. This seems to capture society and nature when unexpected external changes or stimuli — such as climate change, the spread of infectious diseases, and racial, political, and economic crises — plunge people into chaos. The virtual forest is set ablaze, reflecting modern times fraught with unforeseen disorders. In relation to the respiratory disease of COVID-19, the ever growing problem of air pollution, and the marching slogan of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, the word “Breath” has gained new etymological significance. She stresses that, as we are now living in an era of confusion, fluidity, and uncertainty, it’s important to “take a deep breath” and take a close look at ourselves and what we should do. This work urges viewers to take a look at reality outside a human- centric perspective and instead reflect on a future where humankind moves forward by working together.

Ngoc Nau, who talks about Vietnam’s cultural solidarity through holograms and augmented reality (AR), presents a narrative of Vietnam’s contemporary culture from her perspective as a Vietnamese person. ‘The Medium’, the work Nau was commissioned to produce for the Singapore Biennale 2019, is a long-term project that consists of two chapters and explores the spiritual ritual that was held in the artist's birthplace, Thai Nguyen, through two photos in the exhibition space and AR-based application. In ‘Chapter 1: The Legend of Lieu Hanh,’ she tells the story of the spiritual and social life in northern Vietnam during the French colonial period from a Vietnamese perspective. The artist reproduces the narrative of the preparation and performance of the spiritual ritual, which was banned for political reasons from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century in AR. In ‘Chapter 2: The Blessed Child’, the artist digitally recreates the Mother Goddess’ spiritual experience through the scanned brainwaves of her followers. The artist interacts with the region’s contemporary history through the study of “Len Dong Ritual(folk religion),” a Vietnamese traditional cultural practice.

In his ‘Self-Portrait 1.0’, Shengen Lim, who has participated in numerous exhibitions in Singapore and Korea, interacts with viewers using AR technology. The digital image fragments on the floor of the exhibition hall are transformed into the artist’s 3-D portrait through the AR app he developed. Viewers can download the app on their cell phones to discover the artist’s portrait and pose for a photoshoot with it. Self-portrait 1.0 is the outcome of research in portraiture ranging from before the Renaissance to the present. In the genre of portraiture, which was pioneered by Albrecht Dürer and established in the 15th century, a relationship is formed between the viewer and the artist. The artist, who has captured the relationship, actively invites viewers into the work. Lim goes further, taking photos with viewers and asking them to tag photos with @shenanigen on Instagram. With the artist responding to viewers’ hashtags, interactions between the artist and viewers become completed. Currently, the artist is actively communicating with viewers around the world as the work is on tour.

In this way, the three artists accept reality as it is through their works and experiment with bonding and hopeful alternatives beyond reality.

    ASEAN-ROK Culture Innovation Summit, which was prompted by 2019 ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit, suggests the new model of ASEAN-ROK cultural cooperation by gathering culture and arts experts and sharing innovation, challenge and future vision. Especially this year, under the theme ‘ASEANS-ROK Thriving Together through Culture and Technology’, the summit suggests the direction of ASEAN-ROK countries by sharing the experience and know-how of ASEAN-ROK experts who’ve been challenging the paradigms of culture/art and technology while exploring the opportunity of growth through exchanges.
