Ring of Fire
Group Exhibition Matabe House, Naoshima, Japan
Date: 06.21, 2024 - 12.31, 2025

Artists: Apichatpong Weerasethakul 阿彼察邦·韦拉斯哈古 | 

New site-specific commission for the local house "Matabe" in Honmura district, opened to the public starting June 21 (Friday).

Under the title of The Ring of Fire, Haegue Yang and Apichatpong Weerasethakul have conceived an environment, which focuses on the sensations of light, shadow, movement, and vibration. Ring of Fire is a term describing a tectonic belt of volcanoes and sites of frequent seismic activities that surrounds most of the Pacific Ocean. Fed by real-time seismic data, the art works will be operated in two modes, namely 'day' and 'night'. While the sculptural works of Yang are activated in daytime, the installation of Weerasethakul will be active in evening time. The alternating activations of two artists' production reveals investigation about vibration, reflection, sound, light and shadow and mediates us the notion of physical and ephemeral components for wholistic yet abstract experience of art works.
