Black Mat Oriole: Final Activation

Derived from the traditional Korean Chunaengmu dance, the activation reflects the role of individual bodies as they are inscribed into strict grids of power and control in society.
About

*This is the final event associated with the exhibition Black Mat Oriole, which is on view through August 12.

As part of Suki Seokyeong Kang’s exhibition, Black Mat Oriole, performers will be activating Kang’s sculptural installations through a series of movements and gestures derived from the traditional chunaengmu dance, which was performed for royalty and adhered to strict codes of court etiquette.

The activation, created by Seoul-based choreographers Hyeongjun Cho and Hongseok Jang, is performed on the traditional black mats, or hwamunseok, and reflects on the role of individual bodies as they are inscribed into strict grids of power and control in society.

This event is open to the public and free for all.
