Artscapy presents Observing the Human, an exhibition of South Korean contemporary art
Observing the Human presents a journey into human perception – observation – that is enhanced or perhaps rather, distorted, by technological advancement. Five artists, Sejin Kim, Gihun Noh, Daniel Schine Lee, Ga Ram Kim and Bongsu Park, will consider observation as a sensory experience that goes beyond sight, creating a link between what is consciously perceived and subconsciously felt. The artistic interpretations on display are rooted in South Korean contemporary culture and iconography, and will together shape a new outlook on humanity through video, performance, photography, audio and NFT.
The collaboration between Noonssup and Artscapy is bound by the shared goal to showcase rigorous contemporary artistic research whose message is uniquely expressed through technology, and specifically NFTs. Each work has a unique tie to technology as a non-fungible token (NFT), whether the token stores the artwork directly or acts as a right to access the artwork. All the artworks on display will be available to buy through the exhibition website observingthehuman.com and Artscapy.com. Running throughout the exhibition, there will be a workshop and talks programme to help visitors learn more about the artistic project, NFTs and the underlying blockchain technology.
