Hangang Light Festival
The feat of water, musical notes and light at Hangang Riverside Park on an autumn night. Most of the citizens visiting the park come to riverside for relaxation and recovery, a break from hectic and exhausting daily life. The image of water has nurtured the ideas of the nature and the world, the essential laws of life, the providence that is most spontaneous, free and flexible. Also, water stands for whim and turmoil of life, discussed as one fundamental element of life as well as the symbol of life and cycle. Water encourages artist to dream abstraction, its image of indefinite form as flows and waves, and the crystals of it as geometric shapes. Just as people –not only artists but also people looking at the river- have their own thoughts and memories, the flowing water has its own stories. Now the stories of this dream of water unfold in the artworks by 5 different individual/group artists.
