ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The Story About Your Memories of the Weather
D MUSEUM presents Weather, an exhibition elevating our experiences of the weather through photographs, video, sound and installation works,
from May 3 to October 28, 2018. The exhibition features the works of 26 international artists, each engaging with climatic phenomena such as sunlight,
snow, rain, mist and thunderstorms from her or his own unique perspective.
From the thunder and lightning of Greek mythology to storms of 19th-century British novels and the lyrics of contemporary pop songs,
the weather has been an essential driving force in art, culture, philosophy, fashion, design, and all areas of life since ancient times.
This exhibition introduces the diverse approaches of artists creating weather-inspired works, ranging from aesthetically distinct photographs to
installation works amplifying tactile and auditory sensations. Divided into three chapters - Recognizing the Weather, Talking with the Weather,
and Remembering the Weather - the exhibition reads like an essay consisting of a prologue, six stories and an epilogue.
Weather awakens the sensibilities and memories of each audience, in a space filled with special stories of the weather, told by artists
with multifaceted perspectives and in different spaces and times. The works in the exhibition invite us to recall internal memories and forgotten
sensations of the weather, discovering the value in familiar everyday moments.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

CHAPTER 1

Recognizing the Weather

Works that capture everyday climatic concepts from a range of viewpoints,
reawakening of weather that normally goes unnoticed.

sunlight

opens with the work of Mark Borthwick, whose analog
camera records people spending carefree time in the sun
with loved ones, followed by the photographs of Olivia Bee,
documenting memories and trivial emotions on ordinary,
clear days, and of Martin Parr, the legendary documentary
photographer who brings out beach scenes from a witty
perspective.

which explores climatic elements regarded as ‘bad weather,’ viewers
experience Yoshinori Mizutani's surreal images of soft snow falling on a
summer's day, and Evgenia Arbugaeva's works, which present the lives of
people living in the tough environment of the arctic from a romantic,
fairytale perspective.

blue

All about the shades of blue found not in artificial pigments or materials
but in nature alone. Mustafah Abdulaziz's long-term project examining
the relationship between humanity and water, and Maria Svarbova's
series evoking subtle moods according to time of day, light and shades
of blue enhance viewers' visual perceptions of the environment.

Mist

Addresses the visual and tactile sensations of cloud and mist,
uses an installation combining multi-channel video and
physical mist to bring viewers into a thick fog, and poetic
objects in the Nimbus series of Berndnaut Smilde. While the
sky and mist awaken the senses of sight and touch

sounds of rain

Focuses on hearing. Audiences hear rain sounds gathered by director Chosun Hong and fellow Korean sound
specialist raon records as they pass through a dark, 30-metre corridor.

CHAPTER 3

Remembering the Weather

Five artists employ their personal methods of recording the weather
observing its feelings and forms in their own memories.

EPILOGUE

Ulrich Vogl's installations, which fabricate scenes created by projecting colors and wind onto nearby objects, are followed by Jari Silomäki's documenting and juxtaposing of
daily photographs with handwritten notes on global issues or personal thoughts, Kanghee Kim's creation of surrealist scenes by layering heterogeneous elements on the
same canvas, and Alex and Rebecca Norris Webb's records of melancholy weather and their own poetic writings; viewers pass from one set of works to another as if turning
the pages of a book. The final work here is Mark Borthwick's Abandom Reverie’, where viewers share nostalgia for past sunlight in a meditative space filled with analogue
slide images.
