“Waste” of the Korean DPRK non -military zone transformed into art exhibition


China News Agency, Seoul, March 21 (Reporter Zeng Zeng) The “wreckage” of the post of South Korea and North Korea’s non -military zone is becoming a piece of art. On the 21st, an art exhibition with the theme of non -military zone (DMZ) opened in Seoul.


The non -military zone is located in the Border of South Korea and North Korea. For decades, he has been heavily in alert, and has repeatedly erupted sporadic military conflicts. Since the easing of the Korean Peninsula relations last year, the South Korean DPRK proposed to build a non -military zone as a peaceful area; the two sides also tried to complete the evacuation and demolition of 10 police outplans before the end of last year. Today, the “wreckage” of these posts has been given a new life by the artist.

Data map: The Ministry of National Defense of South Korea said on December 12, 2018 that the two sides started the same inspection on the same day for the pilot demolition of the pilot outpost in the South Korean and North Korean non -military districts.

On the same day, the DMZ Art Exhibition appeared at the “Cultural Station Seoul 284”. It was once the Seoul Railway Station.

In the center of the main exhibition hall, there is a “bell of peace” more than 7 meters high. His creator and artist Ahnkyuchul told reporters that the iron material of the bell was taken from the abandoned iron wire mesh of non -military regions. Then he dragged the rope gently, rang a crispy ding. “Listening, the iron wire, which once isolated from the north and the south, has made a peaceful voice now.” Kyuchul said.

Moonkyungwon also collected a large number of iron doors, iron rods, and so on. He transformed these “waste” into visual art devices, with a large screen to show the life of Dachengdong Village in the non -military zone. Dachengdong Village is only 400 meters from the Korean and North Korean military division line commonly known as the “38th Line”, and now there are still more than 100 villagers living. In Kyungwon’s view, the lives of ordinary people have changed due to war and politics, hoping to trigger people’s thinking.

Multiple photo walls were also built in the exhibition hall: Parkjongwoo told the changes of the South Korean and North Korean police outposts with 75 photos; Jungyeondoo, who visited the non -military zone more than 50 times, recorded 13 stories of the desk of the desk … painters used it … painters used the lens … Color depicts the expectations of the future. Kimsundoo just completed the painting named “February” a few days ago -the black wire mesh is densely packed. Look closely. It has a colorful windmill and a few birds singing. He said: “The meaning is not far away.”

As one of the organizers of the exhibition, Kimsunjung, the chairman of the Gwangzhou Biennale Foundation, said that the relationship between South Korea and North Korea has improved significantly today. It is a good time to host an art exhibition. It is hoped that more people will pay attention to and discuss the future of the non -military zone. According to reports, the work of more than 50 artists in this exhibition will last until May 6.
