DAW 2014 SEOUL - OFF LABEL - EXHIBITION

FRI 10 OCT - OPENING @5PM

SAT 11 OCT @6PM

 

  

OFF LABEL event aims at presenting art and connecting creative locals with SWISS and international artists through the series of performances and exhibitions in one of the quirkiest and most dynamic spaces around SEOUL, PLATOON KUNSTHALLE. this bottom-up and melting-pot approach to creating an event on a local platform fosters an open, dynamic, personal and creative urbanity that links together as a social network, nurturing alternative approaches to today’s art making. it can be said that OFF LABEL events let culture go “off label”, or collectively "bend" the expected to actively transgress them through socio-cultural activism that challenges the iconic norms of the market.

VIDEO CAR by URICH LAU is characterized by the artist’s persisting use of experimental techniques involving the use of overlap video art, photographic prints and anything that occupies the conceptual “in between”. URICH LAU has turned the car into an interactive medium by using the windscreen as display for video, presenting an eclectic viewing experience by combining the elements of moving images with the familiarity of a common automobile.

SINGAPORE is new and despite it’s being new has been going through rapid development since its birth. Becoming conscious of the perpetual change of this city-state, the artist MARCEL GASPAR began to take notice of it and use as a point of departure for creating art. The artist believes that before one can even appreciate what has been built, something is takes its place in one-way or another. using artistic documentary approach, the video work R.T.T.P. revisits such migratory places after which a remarkable change has take place and identity redefined.

 

The video work DIS\EXPANSE by TEOW YUE HAN looks into the SINGAPORE citizen-journalism website STOMP and uses the contents found as a departure point for creating a work of art. digital content is taken, and images are created and combined that can embrace concepts of representation, value, circulation and interactivity. as an

artist, TEOW YUE HAN is interested here on focusing on the coordinated gestures that our fingers are capable in dispensing such information.

 

MOONING NORTH KOREA by LIM SHENGEN is a pun on the situation in NORTH KOREA. the work serves as a documentation of a voyeur’s observation of NORTH KOREA from the riverbanks of DANDONG CITY in the chinese province of LIAONING. to create the work, a telescope was used as a tool to travel towards NORTH KOREA from a distant point. the results of the process reveal to viewers beyond the eye of the telescope the charade-taking place.
