Celebrating the 80th anniversary of Korean broadcasting while mourning the passing of Nam June Paik, Rhapsody in Video runs from June 27 through December 31, 2007 at the KBS special exhibit hall. Focusing on Paik’s artworks from 1984 to 2001, the exhibition shows Paik’s golden age, with all his artistic capability and creativity.

Its venue in a duplex structure looks like a music hall where Nam June Paik conducts an orchestra, as indicated in its theme, Rhapsody in Video. Included in the exhibition are the robot series, humorously representing his colleagues, as in the work <Joseph Beuys> from 1990; <The Video Wall> 1991, composed of 94 television monitors; and the video Tortoise, made up of 166 monitors. In <W3>, 1994 color TVs appear in zigzag formation on a wall, while in Video Chandelier, 1991, viewers can walk through a world of fairytale fantasies. On the second floor of the hall, Paik’s satellite trilogy including <Good Morning Mr. Orwell> 1984 is on display, alongside Im Young-gyun’s photographs of Paik’s everyday life, and <TV Bed>, a video work for Charlotte Moorman.

In an interview to mark the 1st anniversary of his passing his wife Kubota Shigeko admitted, “I feel he never died. I converse with him in an elevator or a shopping center, as I did during his life.”
Nam June Paik, a forerunner of video art, may have left us, but his name will live on through the Nam June Paik Art Center, opening in 2008.
