LG presents 'Media art; reinterpreted time', showcasing LG OLED Art, which reinterprets the concept of time in contemporary art through newly commissioned works by emerging artists. Each represents different core themes embedded within time; resistance, infinity, mortality and nature. The emerging artists include Luke Stephenson, JEBAAK and Ruofan Chen.
Breathing new life into digital art, Media art; reinterpreted time will display works created by a a group of international artists, including Ruofan Chen, JEBAAK and Luke Stephenson. Recognised for his collaboration with fashion designer Dries Van Noten, British photographer Luke Stephenson will present a series of playful artworks portraying birds, drawing on his lifelong obsession with the species. Alongside Stephenson’s works, Media art; reinterpreted time will show a selection of video installations by JEBAAK, a Korean artist, whose practice focuses on Zen Buddhism. Using data from Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, JEBAAK created Morpho Luna: data-based artworks exploring energy flows and human spirituality. Also featured in the exhibition, Ruofan Chen will showcase a selection of works comprised from dog hair and tree trunks, drawing on the significance of creating emotional connections with the natural world.
LG’s OLED technology utilises pixels that turn on and off individually (‘self-lit’) to achieve immaculate colour reproduction and infinite contrast, resulting in exceptionally lifelike colours as well as deep blacks and a contrast ratio that maximizes immersion and realism. The OLED technology utilised to display these works creates a unique visual experience.
The exhibition at Saatchi Gallery has been curated by Jason Kim of BESIGN and will be presented within an immersive temporary architectural structure, inspired by Venetian palazzos and created by London-based designer Je-Uk Kim of JiB design studio. Media art; reinterpreted time is the next step in LG’s series of artistic programming, following a recent partnership with Frieze London. With the recently announced Seoul’s plan for a metaverse platform, LG is planning to join the augmented reality in the near future.
