Presented by art tech platform Artscapy in partnership with South Korean art collective Noonssup, five contemporary artists (Bongsu Park, Garam Kim, Sejin Kim, Gihun Noh, and Daniel Schine Lee) will share their observations on human nature on the verge of new technological advancement through video, performance, photography, audio and NFTs.
Observing the Human presents a journey into human perception – observation – that is enhanced or perhaps rather, distorted, by technological advancement. Five artists will consider observation as a sensory experience that goes beyond sight, creating a link between what is consciously perceived and subconsciously felt. The artistic interpretations on display are rooted in South Korean contemporary culture and iconography, and will together shape a new outlook on humanity through video, performance, photography, audio and NFT.
This collaboration between Noonssup and Artscapy is bound by the shared goal to showcase rigorous contemporary artistic research whose message is uniquely expressed through technology, and specifically NFTs. Each work is for sale and has a unique tie to technology as a non-fungible token (NFT), whether the token stores the artwork directly or acts as a right to access the artwork.
A dynamic programme of events will include workshops and talks around the exhibition, NFTs and the underlying blockchain technology:
