‘What Things Dream About’ at MMCA Seoul
‘What Things Dream About’ at MMCA Seoul0The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul is presenting an intriguing exhibition titled “What Things Dream About” until Sept. 18. This exhibition delves into the imaginative concept of objects thinking and acting like humans to challenge and broaden visitors’ perspectives. In an interview, curator Woo Hyun-jung highlighted the museum’s mission to inspire creativity, stating, “Some may find the theme a little bit confusing. But it is our job as a museum to expand people’s thoughts and help them imagine.”

The exhibition covers a variety of themes, featuring around 60 works by 15 artists and collectives. One notable piece is Quercus, a 13-minute video by Formafantasma, a research-based design studio that addresses environmental issues often overlooked in future-oriented discussions. This video juxtaposes scenes of the European logging industry with images of anthropomorphized trees pleading for coexistence.

In his work, artist Kim Han-sol explores the intimate relationship between clothing and humans by replacing zippers, pockets, and buttons with skeletons, organs, and skins. The art piece poses the question of how our physical forms and our clothes influence each other.

The artist collective Superflex, founded by Anab Jain and Jon Ardern, presents Intersection, a documentary and installation that addresses social issues such as climate change, algorithmic autonomy, and the future of jobs. The documentary follows four characters who confront these challenges using alternative technologies. The servers, sensors, and monitors used in the installation are made from recycled electronics and household items, creating a narrative that connects the past, present, and future through interactions between humans and objects.

Through its diverse and thought-provoking works, “What Things Dream About” encourages visitors to consider contemporary issues through the imaginative lens of objects. By depicting objects as entities with their own thoughts and dreams, the exhibition invites us to reflect on our relationship with the material world and the impact of our actions on the environment and society.
