The title of the second show of APMAP Part I, "BETWEEN WAVES" intends to redefine the green tea field into ‘a field of art’ where nature, art, and man come together for a close rapport “between” them by installing the works of art inspired by the natural settings of Seogwang Tea Garden that can be well characterized by the word “wave” such as the waves at the sea around Jeju Island, the waves green tea plants are making at the garden, and the waves of tourists who visit here to enjoy their vacations.
BETWEEN WAVES is presented at Seogwang Tea Garden (OSULLOC TEA MUSEUM), which is located at the mid-mountain area at the southwest part of Jeju Island. The spatial and temporal contexts of the exhibition are the place where tea cultivation is carried out and the summer months when green tea leaves grow most luxuriantly. This vast green tea plantation started around thirty years ago when the site was nothing but a barren wasteland. BETWEEN WAVES expands the definition of the place into “a field of artistic possibility” where art and people can interact with each other by displaying artworks throughout the green field.
The exhibition showcases site-specific artworks by the fifteen participating teams who explored diverse visual art forms such as architecture, sculpture, installation art, design, and media to give form to their inspirations from the natural attributes of Seogwang tea garden. Twelve works are installed along the walkways at Seogwang tea garden, and the rest three are in either the inside or the outside of the buildings of OSULLOC TEA MUSEUM, OSULLOC TEASTONE, and Innisfree JEJUHOUSE. The visitors are provided with a valuable opportunity to have new sensory experiences as they leisurely stroll around this beautiful natural and artistic space.
