KompleX KapharnaüM invested the "Seoul PLaza" from 1 to 7 October 2018 as part of the Seoul Street Art Festival 2018 for a theatrical installation about the concepts of Peace, education, diversity and unification. It is on this iconic site, symbolic space of the city, place of the collective, of popular gatherings, commemorations and protests that the artistic team encountered, collected and staged the word of Koreans.
During an initial workshop, about fifty Korean students were introduced to this theme and the artistic language of KompleX KapharnaüM.
Around the form of the collage, the students produced different works that evoked Peace by all that prevents it, interferes with it, all that limits peacefulness.
In the continuity of this workshop, the artistic team gathered testimonies from citizens and inhabitants, whose experiences illustrate the social tensions that hinder appeasement.
Refugees, North Korean "escaped" feminists, strikers perched on a crane... some examples among the collected stories. These singular words will find their echo in the exchanges of a social network. But not the ones we are used to (Facebook, Instagram, kakaotalk). This is a new network, created physically and materially on a paper basis, with drawings and comments.
During 5 days (from 2 to 5) a meeting point is set up on Seoul Plaza - where passers-by and visitors are invited to participate by posting messages, images, and hereby feed the discussions. With this set of material KompleX KapharnaüM will create an audio-visual fresco on the library façade. All week long the story of the path to peace will be told.
"You have a new message" questions human relationships in an increasingly virtual society. It provided a new place for real, concrete, all-inclusive exchange... through a "installation performance" staged on 6th and 7th October 2018. This creation is dedicated to the SSAF offering to escape from conflicts, to come together in a shared peaceful environment.
