In partnership with the Nam June Paik Art Center in South Korea, a live stream broadcast of the iconic Nam June Paik video installation TV Buddha, 1974 (2002) is projected at the entry of the exhibition. The live stream broadcast of the video installation comes from their current exhibition Nam June Paik – Video Wave. The projection is a direct provocation to question the video medium within the context of the exhibition – the liveness of the medium, the distortion of time and space, the tension between illusion, reality and authentic experience, the conceptual strategies that subvert the medium, and the dynamics connecting local and global aspirations. This first encounter establishes the connection between Nam June Paik’s reflection on the medium and offers through the ‘live stillness’ of TV Buddha a proposition, an attitude toward the video medium that raises questions to model ways we might refocus and reconsider the video medium.
