Nam June Paik Art Center presents the last project of the 2018 Random Access, Disbanding Tendency, by Rémi Klemensiewicz. Klemensiewicz showcases a variety of intermedia works exploring the use of sound in visual art, relations between acoustic and visual objects, diverse symbols and senses as well as the process of perception and reinterpretation of sound.
Disbanding Tendency is attempted to present an array of approaches in the use of sound and visual objects by connecting sound and image via different visual and acoustic modalities. The works on exhibit are based on the theme of ‘language,’ a conventional symbolic system in society that can be suggested through abstract equivalence systems with sound and letter. The works question the relation between the acoustic or musical expression of language and its visual representation. Klemensiewicz sees the correspondence systems between sound and visual as tools to represent historical and social environments and circumstances in a physical and concrete way. The exhibition attempts to enable visitor to experience the ‘language’ with its diverse visual and acoustic signifiers as well as the process of perceiving and reinterpreting sound and to discover a link between sound and visual.
Rémi Klemensiewicz’s major fields of work include the relations of sound and visual, various symbols and senses as well as perception and reinterpretation of sound, mainly using the medium of sound. The artist presents a broad range of intermedia work including sound installation, performance and stage music.
2018 Random Access Project
Nam June Paik Art Center presents the Random Access Project aimed at introducing promising artists who share Nam June Paik’s experimental artistic spirit and understanding trends of contemporary media art with the object of fulfilling Paik’s wish to make the Nam June Paik Art Center a space for young artists. The project will be presented in a new format different from previous group exhibitions in 2010 and 2015. This year, random accesses to young artists are available in multiple places of the Nam June Paik Art Center, including the mezzanine and Eum Space. The title of this project comes from Paik’s work Random Access that he showcased in his first solo exhibition entitled Exposition of Music―Electronic Television (1963). In this work, the tapes of the audio cassette exposed outside of the case are attached to the wall randomly and visitors can use and handle the metal head to make sound. The 2018 Random Access Project begins its experimental journey of locating the coordinates of life with visitors through works by young artists based on such keywords as spontaneity, indeterminacy, interaction and participation like Nam June Paik’s Random Access.
