Seoul-based artist Gyoungtae Hong and director Younsook Im present the first dedicated multimedia exhibition to explore the bustling city of Seoul. Set against the backdrop of the Victorian tunnels at Borough Yards, visitors will be able to weave through the multi-sensory display and immerse themselves in the heritage and culture of Seoul.

Drawing on Seoul’s vast cultural heritage such as the iconic gate Gwanghwamun, the shopping district of Myeongdong and Korean deities, each installation asks visitors to consider how different aspects of the past remain in contemporary Korean society today. A vibrant city with a population of just under 10 million, the exhibition brings the busy metropolis of Seoul to life. In this fresh interpretation of media art, visitors will witness the history, life, and identity of the city. Taking inspiration from poetry and literature as well as exploring the impact of urbanisation, the immersive spaces show viewers where ancient meets modern.

A new solo exhibition by artist Maria Kapajeva entitled “Hear My Scream, Listen To Their Dreams” opened at Tallinn’s Draakoni Gallery on Wednesday. The content of the exhibition is strongly influenced by the gallery’s location directly opposite the Russian Embassy.

According to a press release, Kapajeva’s aim with the exhibition is to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to the continual exposure of harrowing imagery.

Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering people less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.
