(Seoul, South Korea)
To explore the energy and sensations of underground club culture through contemporary art, Storage by Hyundai Card presents “Energy Flash”, a collective, in Seoul, Korea, “in a vibrant underground venue in Itaewon, home to some of Seoul’s hottest nightlife”.
The Brazilian artist Eli Sudbrack (assume vivid astro focus), 2018 PIPA finalist, takes place in the group exhibition presenting “Homocrap #1” (2005). Other 16 global artist brings together around 20 installations, photographs and paintings.
Archives of documents on Korean club culture have been put together by D.J. Maki, an active member of Korea’s underground scene today, while a collection of club flyers from around the world are also on display to help visitors better understand the development of the global phenomenon. Mirror balls on “Orrery” (2019) by Kiichiro Adachi and bright tropical fish tanning lamps in “You Are My Burning Light” (2016) by Lee Won-woo give off disco vibes in the dim-lit underground venue. Photographs and paintings of crowds of people like Wolfgang Tillmans’ “The Spectrum/Dagger” (2014) and Jin Meyerson’s “The Age of Everyone 2” (2011-12) add to the mood.
