Daegu Art Museum seems to carry her previous popularity, which was gained from Kusama Yayoi exhibition, over to 'Animamix Biennale'. This upcoming exhibition, as the title might suggest, will show a world of animation and comics.
Though animations and comics are sometimes borrowed artistically, it is true that these two genres are situated not in the center but on the edge of modern art. This biennale is meaningful in that it tries to establish animation and comics firmly as one genre of the modern art.
Sun-hee, Kim, the director of Daegu Art Museum, said that the previous exhibition of Kusama Yayoi had been for an easy and amusing approach to the modern art for the public adding that the coming Animamix Biennale would also be wonderful enough to capture people's hearts.
The theme of this exhibition is 'A Drama Within'. The artists draw the stories within us through a special technique called animamixing. By drawing the communion of our latent aesthetic sense and imagination, they let us see the real images in ourselves as well as others. The exhibition comprises two sections; one for the animation and comics of modern art, and the other for short animation films.
