SEOUL, Sept. 19 (Korea Bizwire)One of the famous late Korean-American video artist Paik Nam-june’s major works will be on display in Seoul later this week, the Seoul city government said Thursday.

“The three-month exhibition of Paik Nam-june’s ‘Suite 212′ will start Saturday via a 29×7.7-meter big screen, called the Seoullo Media Canvas, at Malli-dong Square in central Seoul,” the city said.

Suite 212 is Paik’s “personal New York sketchbook,” an electronic collage that presents multiple perspectives of New York’s media landscape as a fragmented tour of the city.

Using New York’s area code of 212 as its title, the art piece consists of a series of short pieces featuring the U.S. city’s people, buildings, culture and landscape, including a Chinatown noodle shop, a Tibetan museum, a fashion avenue and Native Americans.

“People will be able to enjoy 13 early pieces of the electronic collage mixed with classical and electronic music,” a city official said.

The exhibit time is 6:00-11:00 p.m. every day until Dec. 19.

The Seoul city government and the Paik Nam-june Art Center co-organized the event.
