Artist : William Kentridge, Fujii Hikaru, Jane Jin Kaisen, Yao Jui-chung 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement and the establishment of the Korean Provisional Government. A wide array of events to promote such monumental movements in diverse ways will be carried out in 2019. The exhibition presented by SeMA will feature the idea of Hongik Ingan (or “humans who benefit broadly in the human world or who are devoted to the welfare of humanity”), historical traditions shared by the North and the South, and the spirit of the March 1st Movement couched in global contemporary art idioms. This exhibition is intended to represent our struggles to elucidate our national and individual identities and the core of our national spirit while conveying a spirit imbued in history through the five senses of art. It features works that unmask both national and individual identities shaken and intimidated by external forces using the motifs of silhouettes and shadows. The exhibition was prompted by the concept in which a hidden side or a form is elemental while any shadow arising in the polar opposite of light is usually thought to represent the element of “yin.” The exhibition is designed to enhance art’s capacity and potential by directly and indirectly addressing the principle of national self-determination through a series of historical events from the March 1st Movement and the Korean Provisional Government’s foundation to the restoration of Korea’s independence in the territory of contemporary art. In particular, it serves as an opportunity to interpret Korean history from the perspective of world history through collaborations with foreign artists who have shed light on each historical event and identity. March 1st Movement - The March 1st Movement was the Korean people’s subjective anti-Japanese movement that arose in reaction to the repressive nature of colonial occupation under the rule of the Japanese Empire. It began in 1910 with the secret organization of armed groups, educational and cultural movements, and peasants and workers’ movements for protection of their right to live. These movements were profoundly influenced by changes in the international situation around the end of World War I. The idea of a socialist revolution that led to the Russian Revolution of 1917 made an impact on nationalist movements within colonies and the principle of national self-determination proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson and the Versailles Peace Conference had a great effect on the people of weak power there. - The movement that had continued for several months was triggered by the handout of the Korean Declaration of Independence in Seoul. After March 10 this movement spread to other regions of Korea as young people and students tried to organize secret groups in order to achieve national independence with their subjective capabilities. This marks a big difference from other people’s independence movements. This one is particularly important in that it was a people’s movement that actively involved people from all walks of life including workers, peasants, and those from small and medium-sized industries and shops. To mark the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement - As the issue of reunifying the North and the South draws worldwide attention, remembering the March 1st Movement is highly important to reaffirming the identity of our people and forging a new history in 2018 and 2019. One of the purposes of this project is to creatively enhance the spirit of the March 1st Movement in inter-Korean issues, environmental problems, and conflicts between ideologies, regions, classes, and generations. The project is also expected to serve as an opportunity to forge an East Asian community of peace as well as a network for world peace so as to resolve Korea-Japan relations fraught with conflicts. - In a broad sense, SeMA will present a fairytale-like exhibition aggressively couched in glossaries of contemporary art so as to allow the members of our society to sense the spirit of the March 1st Movement with their five senses.
