SEOUL, Sept. 6 (Korea Bizwire)Seoul’s Hangang Park is now an open-air gallery. According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government, 37 works of interactive installation art were introduced to the park’s network in Yeouido and Ichon.

Created in line with the overall theme “Han River, stop and flow in art,” the installations embody the meaning and value that the river has in artistic form.

A total of 24 art pieces have been installed in Hangang Park’s Ichon area, while 13 were installed in Yeouido Park.

Four different sections have been allotted following the four themes of “activity,” “relaxation, “excitement,” and “secrecy” that reflect the various images Hangang Park exudes.

The project’s budget is estimated at 10.2 billion won, and a total of 37 artists or teams participated in the project including the likes of local artist Gwon O-sang, Kim Min-ae, and Ji Yong-ho as well as internationally renowned artists like Luke Jerram.
