Laure Prouvost in Tactics: Nam June Paik Art Center, Seoul, South Korea

25 February - 3 June 2021
Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin, Korea

The exhibition Tactics contemplates the art and life tactics to respect and consider diversity, by which nature, things, and humankind can coexist. The term 'tactics' used in the exhibition is borrowed from the French scholar Michel de Certeau's concept. He utilizes it to discuss the 'performativity of the subject,' a method of practice by which the excluded others resisted concentrated power in everyday life in modern society. The participating artists are making a gap by small physical performances in this wartime-like period. This exhibition tries to observe a movement by which others refuse to be a target of suppression and surveillance and create a crack in the system continuously using little stories. It cherishes the slight hope that it might poke a hole in the solid world with these small artistic practices and look inside of it.
