“Blacklist,” the Student council of College of the Arts, held “Exhibit All” exhibition online, which was one of their pledges. “Exhibit All” exhibition literally means that anyone who belongs to the College of the Arts can participate without restriction. Kim Ji-yeon, the President of the College of the Arts said, “Different departments in our College progress different academic festivals such as play in the Division of Theatre, film festival in the department of Film & Digital Media, assignment exhibition in the Department of Fine Arts, and martial arts festival in the department of Sports and Culture.” She added, “However, some work pieces which were done personally or out of schedule end up as private possession without a chance to be seen. Therefore, we planned an exhibition for feeling sorry for those works which have been in the shade. Also, we wanted to inform everyone that there are various works taking place in the College of the Arts.”
The Blacklist received photos of each participant’s work pieces until September 7th and there was no limit to the form of entries from photos and videos to installation arts. Also, they are gathering students’ photos of various memories during the last semester, such as private chatting at the webex chat room and looking for must-eat places with their face masks on, for the “Reports of COVID-19.” Kim Ji-yeon explained about the “Records of COVID-19” saying, “It is an exhibition of episodes, writings and pictures of webex classes during the last semester. However, perhaps because of the burden of showing photos with their faces, the participation rate is too low to proceed the project. Therefore, we are thinking of changing plans and re-creating exhibition works.”
All the work pieces of “Exhibit All” exhibition can be appreciated on the Instagram and blog of the College of the Arts. Kim Ji-yeon gave her impression saying, “While preparing for the exhibition, it was hard to get a feeling for an “online exhibition,” select the platform and balance budget. However, we were fully satisfied, seeing fellow students being happy as their works are exhibited. Also, the viewers told us that it was a great opportunity to appreciate various activities of College of the Arts.”
The Dongguk Post interviewed Song Da-hyun, a junior of the Department of Fine Arts, one of the artists who participated in the exhibition, about her impression about the online exhibition.
Q. How did you come to participate in the exhibition?
A. Originally, the Departments of Fine Arts hosts assignment exhibition once in a semester. However, all the exhibitions were canceled due to the COVID-19 this year, thus I felt sad that I did not have any chance to show works I made hard. Then, I heard that the Student Council will host an online exhibition and I was glad to participate in the exhibition in any form.
Q. Please explain your work “Between self’s will and other’s” for us.
A. I usually work focusing on contradictions between social issues and personal experiences. “Between one’s will and other’s” tells the story of the confusion between the identity that the society gives to individuals and the identity that individuals feel themselves.
Q. How do you feel about participating in the online exhibition? Also, please tell us if you have anything you want to say for the last time.
A. It was quite awkward to participate in an online exhibition for the first time and I think the viewers might be more unfamiliar to the online exhibition. However, I am grateful that I got an opportunity to show my work in a new form. Also, I appreciate the Student Council for providing me this opportunity.
As a president of the College of the Arts, Kim Ji-yeon asked for continuous attention to the College of the Arts for the last time. She said, “Students at the College of the Arts are doing their works consistently even in the COVID-19 situation. Please keep interested in us!”
