<art@dibrary>, The First Year Anniversary Exhibition of the National Library of Korea

The Digital Library of the National Library of Korea located in Seocho-dong is having its first year anniversary exhibition, <art@dibrary>, from May 18 to July 30. The show starts from the digital library in the National Library of Korea located on the B3 floor and the show spreads out to many different places throughout the building with metaphoric forms of images and texts that have been possible by the power of technology, and the show is almost like a treasure searching throughout the building. The core meaning of this show is that the digital art pieces that are not easy to be seen to the public are gathered at one place. The joy of viewing the show is actually double because of the special exhibition site, a library. Digital art that might be new to public is presented not conventionally placed at an art museum, but at a library where people should be respectful and be quiet and the digital library where all the cutting edge new technology devices are gathered have created positive effects through the combinations with the treasure-searching-like digital art show and stories of each artwork.

       Combination of images and texts, analog and digital fill the national digital library and lets the library be the cross point where every element’s symbolic core meanings are inter-connected. If conventional library created space and visualized weight of knowledge that human stored, digital library uses high technology and suggests new ways of communication and does roles as a place for thinking deeply about today’s new materials. The digital library which is a digital interface’s receiver and a sender uses digital art to express its identity visually. Artworks at <art@dibrary> consist of artworks that are made from digital language of 010101 and made from aspects of invisible system of society. For example, stock market’s endless changing value of currency is reflected on <Coincident Balance> by Muen, or messages about society that the society works under rules and freedom is expressed in the  <Puzzle> by Park Joon-bum which also shows invisible system of society. Also, <Water Soojehbee> by Lee Hyun-jin is an interactive artwork, and it is like a game that connects human and computer to show simply but firmly the process of connect between reality and virtual reality.

Plus, some other artworks show directly the theme of this show, art@dibrary. Handmade book is a sum of personal experiences and a form made with text is created into a visual form called, a book. Also, a digital image is a type of multimedia piece that it has disconnected structures of visual and audio. Lilil and the work by Kim Hee-sun show artwork that mixes such concept of book and such concept of digital media. Lilil is an animation of drawings with texts from the artist’s experiences at Baekryung Island beach, and Kim Hee-sun adopts concept of time into her work, and she created 6 minute animation about scenery of 80 years of Seoul Train Station area, and Kim shows concept of continuity and disconnections which after all allows her audience to think deeply over about concept of time. Other than these artworks above, Kang Ae-ran’s digital book project and Kim Joon’s animation works are impressive. One thing that I miss though is that I wish that there’s one theme that can connect every artwork of the show. I hope that it is only me who fills that the artworks that are created by various ways with many stories contain in are not standing out as much as they could.
