Body Matters

The lengthy title of the massage bed placed on one side of the exhibition hall is Put down the burden on your shoulders and just laugh_massage. If you visit on designated dates, artist Yu Mok-yeon will even give you a massage. This dubious exhibition focuses on the human body by displaying works such as a video of a lady dancing and a drawing of someone rolling out dough on a person’s chest and scoring it with a knife. In today’s era where the fake can replace the real and the virtual can replace the actual, this show asks where the body is situated between art and life.
