Have you ever imagined that an ordinary door could be the entrance to a secret world?
5 Houses and 30 Doors is an exhibition of hands-on artwork
that embody Ahn, Kyuchul’s imaginative interpretation of the door
and allow visitors to experience them in fun ways.
After passing through the entrance,
decorated with a row of hanok (traditional Korean houses) doors,
visitors will encounter an unexpected space (“houses”) of varying sizes and characteristics each time they open a door.
The exhibition allows us to experience doors and indoor spaces that mean something quite different from the familiar everyday door.
|Theme||Imaginative experience through door|
|Location||1F Special Exhibit|
These doors, taken from hanok (traditional Korean houses), were opened and closed by many people over a long time.
This house is full of plants. There’s even a tree hanging from the sky! If you take a moment to observe the plants, you may see things you haven’t noticed before.
All kinds of mirrors cover the inside of this house. See how your reflection changes according to where you look into them and how.
We are surrounded by straight lines, right angles, and symmetrical shapes. What it would be like to live in a crooked house made of twisty lines?
Are you sure this is the door to enter the house? See the sky and the captured by Ahn, Kyuchul’s point of view.
Use your imagination to draw a door and the space behind it, just like the artist!
