The Performer N°5 - Ha Suk-jun

The Performer N°5 represents the relationship between technology and man, and between light and darkness in human history.

The exhibit is a metaphor on the need to return closer to Nature.

In 2013, following an art performance in Milan where he wore a large television set with advertisements on it, the artist began to question the way contemporary technology was consuming him. 

The Performer N°5 Monks is an installation with a solar panel supported by two sculptures in human form.  It represents the relationship between technology and man, and between light and darkness in human history. Electricity, which is environmentally friendly, produces magnificent lights in the evening.   

Ha Suk-jun is a graduate in Communication Design from the Parsons School of Design in the United States and obtained a MA in Fine Arts from the formative arts department of the Korea National University of Art. He is currently active within the non-profit arts association ‘Space Bar 261’ and the ‘Art and Disaster’ team. He is also a professor in the interior architecture design department of Hanse University’s School of Design. An exhibition at the Brussels Korean Cultural Centre tells you more about the artist and his peers.
