TV Fish (Video Fish)

Proclaimed by the legend himself as “the house where the spirit of Nam June Paik lives on,” this space was opened to the public in 2007. A known pioneer of media art and, perhaps, the biggest name to come out of Korean art, 67 collections of the artist’s work are on display here. Both experts and those unfamiliar with the artist can derive joy from viewing some of his more famous works, such as Video Fish (a television that loops a recording of a fish in a fish bowl) and Garden (a television that flips from one channel showing gardens to another). On the second floor of the art center, there is an exhibition of 11 media artists who have reinterpreted Nam Jun Paik’s artwork. Since this year marks the 10th anniversary of his passing, now would be an especially meaningful time to visit the art center.
