    Again, Multiplicities of Rewilding Exhibition

    ‘Again, Multiplicities of Rewilding Exhibition' consists of an outdoor exhibition in the forest of Yeonmisan Mountain and an indoor exhibition at Geumgang Nature Art Center. This exhibition aims to search for discourses on new 'natures', rewilding and multiplicities in social, cultural, and artistic dimensions toward nature-friendly, restorative, healing works for future visions of nature art and new recovery of art ecology, which is based on the 40-year history of nature art by YATOO.

    Nature Art Video Exhibition ‘Forest and Life’

    As a symbol of nature, forest is a place where lives are conceived and growing. Forest awakes human beings to the precious value of living together with nature. Forest provides us with endless energy and products. The fresh air, clean water, fertile soil, trees and fruits that grow in the forest, and all sorts of animals who inhabit there, naturally live together in harmony. In the beginning, it must be the peaceful world where everything was growing and flourishing based on this harmony. That must be the cosmos where everything from apex predators to subordinate invisible microorganism was complying with the laws of nature. However, the advance of human cognitive ability, natural science, and industries objectified nature and destroyed forest under the guise of forest development. As human’s desire made a mistake of going against the laws of nature, human beings faced the fatal revenge from nature in other way around. Such severe natural disasters or an unheard-of pandemic could be self-contradiction of humans who went against the laws of nature. For some reason, the bees that should spread pollen have recently vanished. This is the result of destroying the ecosystem. In the ecosystem, all the lives form their own balance and homeostasis in the process of being born, growing, and extincting. This process does not just mean simple changes in physical aspect. There is a death in a birth while a new life dwells in an extinction. Forest has the water, air, and soil that vitalize every life, so it not only gives a life to human, but also heals, comforts, and shelters exhausted humans. It is so natural that we forget its value. If a single little movement is stopped, lost, or artificially manipulated, a massive hardship would be caused in human life.

    The Geumgang Nature Art Biennale has broadened the horizons of nature art by handling various discourses on nature and ecology. The theme of this year is ‘rewilding’, which begins from a thought of cognizing nature again as the wild state. Beyond the passive and artificial attitude of handling nature as an object of protection or management, it aims to experience the sound of nature as it is and also to dream of its recovery. It would be necessary to look back on our attitude of invading and locking up nature based on our limited thinking. The destroyed forest for building a dam in a river for the smooth supply of water for agriculture, and installing the photovoltaic power generation system for the reduction of carbon emission, ciceronically tells us our mistake. It takes an unbelievably long time to restore the ecosystem and lives whose habitat has been destroyed by logging or forest fire.

    The tasks we have might include discovering lives from nature we destroyed, finding some unexpected sounds or figures of lives in nature, harmonizing with nature based on them, inviting the lives who left the forest because of human’s desire, and helping the forest conceive new and healthy lives. Such tasks could just end up in an ideological flow, but we can simply start participating in dialogues with nature by thinking and experiencing after stopping for a moment in the complex and busy reality. Under this purpose, the theme of the Video Exhibition is ‘Forest and Life’. Hopefully, this could be a chance to expand the discourse of rewilding through video languages to find, experience, and share various secret stories of healthy lives in forest ecology and nature.

    Nature Art Cube Exhibition

    《Nature Art Cube Exhibition》, which has been conducted as one of the indoor exhibitions of 《 Geumgang Nature Art Biennale》 since 2017, is a program that seeks to interpret and broaden awareness of nature in various ways of thinking and expression in a 12cm cube. In fact, dealing with nature in a limited space is not as easy as you might think, but on the other hand, because it is a limited space, paradoxically, you may be able to show more imagination.

    Although the theme of this bienneale ‘Rewilding’ is an ecological concept, it is a concept that extends beyond ecology to the realm of the human psyche. It is an attitude that seeks to restore nature, which has been objectified by rational thinking, into the ever-changing, natural ecosystem. It aims at wildlife and species diversity, which are attributes of natural ecology. On the other hand, the fusion of the realms of nature, humans, and society seen in these projects reminds us of the state of 'chaosmose', which means the mutual penetration of chaos and cosmos. The chaos of nature and the order of society are revealing the languages interpenetrated by the artists' unconscious. The frame of the cube is a constraining condition that can objectify nature, but we hope that it will be dismantled and spread as a field of expanded exploration of nature art through more free imagination and mutual penetration in the future.
