Busan Biennale 2022

Busan Biennale, including the works of Pia Rönicke
Busan, Korea
September 3 - November 6, 2022

This exhibition takes Busan as a starting point in reflecting on the stories that remain or lie hidden within the history of Busan since the modern era and the changes in the city’s structure, and examining them in relation to the reality in the world. The “rising wave” in the title signifies the history and transformations of Busan, and the people pushed out of it and flowing into it, while also signifying global interconnectedness. Additionally, the wave is a metaphor for dissemination in an environment of technological change, as well as a description of Busan’s rolling landscape of seaside hills. “On the rising wave” is an expression that refers to the ways in which the individual bodies situated in this terrain and history are closely tied to their environment, and to the situation of standing atop this endlessly shifting topography as we survey the future.
