New-Geumgangjeondo_2009 single channel video/7min 10sec
Geumgang jeondo(the landscape of Diamonds Mountains), which was originally painted in 1734 has been changed and recreated by the artist Lee Lee-nam. Modern city constructed under the cover of night illuminates an image of the future in the artist’s mind. All of sudden, helicopters and combat planes fly in the dark sky above Mt. Geumgang. Discord between the old painting and an icon of civilization implies inevitable unrest and emerging crisis from an advanced society.
