MOON Kyungwon – Promise Park

– Feb 14 2016
@YCAM, Yamaguchi

new installations

Parks can be found in every city in the world. Why were they created and what kind of places were they originally meant to be? For a period of three years, beginning in 2013, YCAM is undertaking Promise Park Project in collaboration with the South Korean artist MOON Kyungwon to explore the theme of “park” of the future. This exhibition was intended as a compilation, made up of fieldwork and results of surveys conducted as part of the project, presented in the form of two new installations and “Park Atlas” (Archive of Parks.)
