Project Gallery, MMCA Seoul, Korea
Kwon Ha-youn's new work "XXth Attempt towards the Potential of Magic" kicked off the "MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse" at the Project Gallery, MMCA in February.
The participatory VR performance invites three people at a time to explore an artificially created world in the VR headset, while actual performers interpret the movements within the VR experience in reality. Wearing the VR headset, the audience will experience a moment where an artificially created fiction connects with the reality via something that connects the art museum space and the virtual world. This work aims to experiment with virtual reality through a participatory performance, which surveys the concept of borders and relationships between the virtual and real worlds.

The Ilmin Museum of Art unveils Fortune Telling, a journey of reinterpreting shamanism and a cosmic worldview, investigating the meaning of fate and facets of one’s inner world. The COVID-19 pandemic has strikingly increased uncertainties, paralyzing preexisting value systems and institutions. A new normal has become a daily routine, while the futurologists offer their analysis of the post-corona era predicting the advent of a new paradigm.
Each individual who has lost their way in physical and spiritual anxiety feels in need to identify their existence and connect with others. Divination or Studies on Changes anchored in mysticism is still extant deeply in people’s current rituals whipping up anxiety and stimulating desire to foresee the future. “Fortune Telling” brings together works by 17 teams of contemporary artists ，artistically explores the mystical aspects and tendencies permeating into the most clandestine sphere of life.
