ECLIPSE (Playtime) ©

Isaac Julien and Victoria Miro Gallery, London 

Date
Wednesday 22 February 2017 to Sunday 30 April 2017
Location
Platform-L Contemporary Art Center

One of the UK’s representative film artists, Isaac Julien is presenting a solo exhibition, Playtime, at Platform-L Contemporary Art Centre for the first time in Korea until 30 April.

Throughout the extensive solo exhibition, Isaac examines inevitable and fundamental questions around capitalism, labour and the art market of our time.

His work engages with postcolonialism, migration and diaspora, racism and minor gender identities as thematic approach. The intrinsic contradiction and limits of capitalism is depicted in an apocalyptic tone.

The exhibition consists of three works including Playtime (2014), functioning as the major axis to the constellation paired to Kapital (2013), and finally The Leopard (2007), which renders historic traumas into a choreography playing on the border of life and death.
