金高芸 atelier kim.gottlieb public art : gwangju biennale park

We used the international language of dance as a theme for a permanent illuminated installation in front of the main building of the Gwangju International Fine Art Biennale.

The park is surrounded by residential housing, therefore we integrated a polyvalent use consideration into our concpt by making the shoe-shaped dance 'Steps' into a comfortable urban park space, where resident could sit stand, have picnics and otherwise enjoy the area late into the evening. From the higher floor of the surrounding buildings one can clearly see that the 'Steps' are indeed organized in sets of dance figure, breakdance, tango, and disco.
