BUSAN BIENNIALE: WE, ON THE RISING WAVE
Busan Biennale: We, One The Rising Wave
The Biennale’s title symbolizes the constant inflow and outflow of immigrants from other port cities around the world, suggesting global interconnectedness. It is also a metaphor for dissemination in an environment of technological change, as well as a description of Busan’s rolling landscape of seaside hills.
The Busan Biennale artistic director Haeju Kim shares: “The exhibition will put forward a viewpoint that narrates the stories of backstreets in Busan, and how they are intersected and connected to that of other major cities, in an attempt to explore ways adapting to the ever-changing world as we ride the waves ahead of us.”
This exhibition – an exploration of collective memory and a reflection on movement and history – spans Pier 1 of Busan Port and a house in Choryang from 3 September to 6 November 2022
