Art from South Korea

Yongseok Oh

A Korean Artist, Yongseok Oh, is now storing an art project focussed on time, in the Arctic World Archive. Through his art, Yongseok Oh emphasizes the crossing of the past and the present, the real and the imagined, by creating a visual collage of stills and moving images. The idea behind the Eternal Pause project was to use old still photographs and bring the moment back to life through movement. To realise the project, he sought people who wanted to preserve their photos forever or wanted their photos to live beyond their life. He then wanted to celebrate the concept of time further by finding a way to preserve that now living moment into the future.
