Jeongmoon Choi / Lightopia
My experience at Marco was fun, exciting, entertaining, and most of all, dynamic. Throughout my visit, all I could see were special effects created by lights. Moreover, what caught my attention the most was how simple the exhibited pieces of art were: from brightened papers flying, through a simple exhibition of a light bulb and a lemon. With this, I was able to conclude that modern times are changing the perception of art. It’s not anymore an aesthetic matter, but the message being transmitted.
On the other hand, from the two expositions I visited, the one I liked the most was the one called “Lightopia”. Jeongmoon Choi was interesting as well, but if you were expecting to take good pictures, the darkness surrounding the exhibitions didn’t allow to see yourself on the photographs. Moreover, Lightopia was set with the perfect amount of light required for a great picture. The exhibitions on Lightopia transmitted a happier environment because of the colors used throughout their gallery of art. Don’t get me wrong, Jeongmoon Choi was interesting because you get to see how lines behave and how they manage to create different perspectives of the world whenever they are arranged and enlightened in a unique way, but the interaction audience-piece was not as pleasant as the one in Lightopia. The colourful wall, for instance, displayed different tones of colors which allowed the public to appreciate the piece by taking thousands of photographs. Moreover, the Jeongmoon Choi exhibition was much shorter than Lightopia.
Below are some pictures taken during my visit.
