The KCC UK Rehearsals Exhibition – Lighting Design Consultants
Our lighting design consultants, once again, illuminated the KCC UK’s latest contemporary art exhibition in London.
The KCC UK in London presents their latest exhibition: “Rehearsals”. This exhibit, from the Korean Avant-Garde Performance Archive Exhibition, forms part of the 2017-2018 Korea & UK season.
This contemporary art exhibition examines the development of South Korea’s performance art scene during the late sixties and seventies. In addition, the art on display was produced in an atmosphere of rebellion against an inflexible political regime. Once again, our design consultants assisted the KCC UK on the exhibition design layout, installation and lighting of the contemporary art exhibition.
Extraordinarily, the exhibition had live performances by Kun-yong Lee’s, one of which is his re-enactment of his 1979 Snail’s Gallop performance.
With this in mind, the positioning of the art and lighting had to work with the artist as well as lighting the art to its optimum, for visitors to appreciate the art on display.
Our lighting design consultants adopted the following lighting design solutions:
Over one hundred LED light fittings were used throughout the art galleries. These lights were consequently fitted with various lighting filters to highlight this wonderful art exhibition. The diverse time periods of this artistic project were lit using different color temperatures of light. For example: the older 1960’s art used 4000k whilst the later art works used 5000K (a more cool whiter light). This transformation in light temperature also assisted the delineation of the works.
Best of all, Kim Ku Lim & Kun-yong Lee are both celebrated South Korean artists and they independently remarked how beautifully the lighting and exhibition design layout had been executed.
