Christie projectors light up the work South Korean artist Park Chan-kyong
Christie HS series laser projectors have been used to display two signature artworks by award-winning South Korean artist Park Chan-kyong as part of his solo exhibition titled ‘Park Chan-kyong—Gathering’. The projectors were provided by Christie Korea and installed for the exhibition by its local partner, SNC Alliance.
Currently staged at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea (MMCA) until February 2020, the four-month exhibition showcases a collection of Park’s artistic works, including ‘Fukushima, Autoradiography’ and ‘Belated Bosal’ presented in photographic and film format respectively. Both are focused on the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan and how radioactive contamination had adversely affected humans and nature. Images depicting the after-effects of the nuclear meltdown are displayed on screens using three ceiling-mounted Christie D13WU-HS 1DLP laser projectors.
Dong-Woo Lee, CEO of SNC Alliance, said: “The digital projections of these two artworks have blown visitors away with unprecedented depth and realism that captures a sense of despair and isolation that the artist, Mr. Park, seeks to portray to audiences. Kudos to the Christie D13WU-HS laser projectors that are deployed for these exhibits – their true-to-life colors and performance have impressed even Mr. Park himself, who commented that the projections have brought out the best of his works with excellent contrast.”
Paul Lee, sales manager for enterprise at Christie Korea, commented: “We’re pleased to return to MMCA as the projection technology provider for this exhibition by renowned artist Park Chan-kyong. We are also delighted that the D13WU-HS laser projectors have captivated visitors with astounding visuals, which added more depth and meaning to Mr. Park’s works. I’m also thankful to our partner SNC Alliance for completing the installation and demonstrating to museums that digital projection is the way to go to in enhancing visitors’ appreciation of art exhibitions.”
