Words at an Exhibition 《열 장의 이야기와 다섯 편의 시》 an exhibition in ten chapters and five poems is derived from the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky’s (1839–1881) piano composition, Pictures at an Exhibition (1874), which is a sonic interpretation of ten artworks made by his friend Viktor Hartmann (1834–1873). Mussorgsky transformed Hartmann’s two-dimensional works into another medium, sound. By borrowing this approach of interpreting and translating the Busan Biennale 2020 attempts to transform the city into short stories and poems and into artworks and sound.

PS. When we found out – four/five days before the opening – that we could not open on 5thSeptember the team made a huge effort to have an online opening/platform. If you can not come to Busan at least there is a 3D tour on the http://www.busanbiennale.org/eng Thank you again and enjoy.
