This exhibition, revolving around the theme of "new ecology and art," aims to shed light on ecological art practices from efforts by both artists and researchers of the current age.
In the "Anthropocene," a time when human activities have greatly impacted nature and changed the global environment, anthropocentrism and excessive capitalism have put not only the natural environment but also our social and spiritual environments at risk of becoming unsustainable. Under such circumstances, artists are taking on the role of mediators and translators who investigate, observe, and communicate the "new ecology" that comprehensively perceives these environments to the public through a new aesthetic.
Art, through sensory learning, influences the way we live and think by presenting a micro-perspective that works on the viewer's body, consciousness, and sensitivity, and a macro-perspective that visualizes the reality surrounding our world based on data and informational evidence. Art from now on will connect our divided world with empathy and explore how we can imagine a de-anthropocentric, pluralistic humanity that includes animals, plants, objects, etc. This exhibition shall equip us with various indicators and hints as we search for new ways of thinking and living, like a compass leading our way, in the post-COVID era.
