|New Romance is an exhibition that uncovers the relationships between human and non-human beings explored in art pieces, co-hosted by MMCA(National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea) and MCA(Museum of Contemporary Art Australia). |
The two curators in Australia and Korea came up with the name of the exhibition New Romance in the process of discussing about, and translating Neuromancer into Korean. Neuromancer is a typical Cyberpunk novel by William Gibson with a genre known as the combination of the romantic impulse of science and technology. Such lost in translation incident was a lucky accident perfect to express the romantic trends of new media art.
|In order to reflect upon the theme of interaction between human and non-human beings in a visual, two halves of different faces make up a whole one. The same method was applied to illustrate the title.|
