Looking north

Looking North (2018) is a collaborative multimedia exhibition by Danny Kim (MFAEDA ’18) and Peter Lisignoli (MFAEDA ’13) examining the landscapes of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) at the border between North and South Korea. As an outsider, this was Lisignoli’s second visit to the DMZ area, the experience left him with a feeling of displacement. The serene landscapes of the 38th parallel were strangely memorialized with museums, gift shops, and amusement parks. Kim, a native Seoul-born Korean citizen who served in the military was struck by the oddity of the DMZ theme park where tourists looked longingly through the telescopes across the Imjin River, fascinated by the neighboring country, after more than six decades of separation.
