Asia TOPA: When It Rains (I feel like eating Jeon)

Exhibition and Shows

20 Feb 2020 to 1 Mar 2020

When landscapes change, do people change?

When It Rains (I feel like eating Jeon) is an installation inspired by the story of a Korean elder in Ansan, who takes a walk everyday to the place where the sea used to be. This work considers the solvent connections between site, sensation and memory, and the routines that we associate with these.

In a fluid, decentered space audiences can explore their own associations: the experience is distant with an illusion of closeness.

Where you are perhaps it no longer rains, or rain becomes an abstract symbol for desiccated country, or a signal to seek comfort, or a deafening torrent that signals the terror of inundation. The artists collaborating on this exploration of space and embodied memory have been brought together by producer Jin Yim through their long-term connections and developments in Korea and Australia.
