ITAMI JUN: Architecture of the Wind

Back Download

The exhibition “Itami Jun: Architecture of the Wind”, held in 2014 at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, portrayed the relationship between architecture and art, and the journey of unity pursued by the Korean-Japanese architect Itami Jun (1937–2011). It showed realistic variations of light and dark, as well as the artist’s sensitivity regarding materials. The exhibition design focused on visualising light and shades of black, the opening and closing of structures, and the drifting spatial characteristics of his actual work in terms of colour, structure and materials. All elements, other than the works themselves, were taken away or emptied out so as to not interfere with appreciation of the exhibits, thus creating space for meditation and contemplation.
