In the “21st century San-shin” workshop we worked with a group of 10 young Koreans and explored the theme of San-shin mountain spirits and mountain worship through experiments that took form of site specific installations and performances. The outcome of the workshop was an interactive installation exhibited at the Dukwon gallery in Seoul. This workshop is an example how culture and heritage can be explored through art . The workshop concept could be adapted to various exhibition themes and offered as a participatory activity in a museum environment.
“21st Century San-Shin” was organized as a part of UNESCO funded Standingby 000 program in collaboration with Mizy Center and Loop Gallery. It took place 8 times in July and August 2011 in Seoul and ended with a group exhibition 17.8-27.8.2011in Dukwon Gallery.
