LONDON, Oct. 15 (Yonhap) -- “LUX: New Wave of Contemporary Art,” an LG-sponsored new media art exhibition held at 180 Studios in the heart of London city in UK, is presenting excitement and fresh inspiration to the citizens.

The exhibition, which will be open until Dec. 18, has put 13 artworks of 12 media art teams on display.

The main and highlight work is “Starry Beach” by a South Korean media artist group a’strict.

Visitors couldn’t walk away from the vividness of the multimedia featuring a large wave tumbling towards them.

“The Korean artists are brilliantly creative and recently Korean cultures, from K-pop to ‘Squid Game,’ has become so popular. We think this exhibition will attract a great deal of young people,” said Mark Wadhwa, the owner of the iconic contemporary art center 180 The Strand where the studio is located in and the host of the exhibition, on the 11th (UK time).

“Morando,” a’strict’s new work to be introduced in the U.K. first along with “Starry Beach” uses transparent OLED. It uses new media to express the delicacy of Moutan peony and the atmosphere of the South Korean traditional art, which is impressive.

“Universe” (2019) by Professor JE BAAK of Seoul National University, who is working in Europe and Korea, is also on display as well. On the vivid black background, images such as flamboyantly sparkling merry-go-rounds repeatedly appear expressing insecure and hollow sensations of being under control of algorithm.

Es Devlin, also known as a world-class stage designer, throws a warning message about climate change through her new work “BLUESKYWHITE.” An artificial intelligence media facade, “Renaissance Generative Dreams” (2020) by professor Refik Anadol of UCLA has analyzed and reinterpreted over a million of the Renaissance artworks using AI.

Many of the exhibition’s works were produced with OLED through LG Electronics’ sponsorship.

Lee Ji-yoon of director of SUUM Project and the executive curator of LUX said, “’Light,’ the theme of the exhibition merges technology and art and shows the new perspectives and languages of the contemporary artists.”

“Artists have strived in studying new media such as technology and there are bigger questions to ask about art and technology. It seemed like now we needed to show the answers,” said Lee.

She also highlighted, “We don’t want to limit the exhibition’s works down to ‘media art.’ Instead, we want to call them, the new wave of contemporary art”
