New teamLab Exhibition to open in Seoul

22nd July 2020

(South Korea) – teamLab: LIFE will open at Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) on 18 September 2020.

Art collective teamLab’s new exhibition, teamLab: LIFE, will open at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul, South Korea, this September.

The exhibition will feature a collection of teamLab’s immersive artworks on a massive scale, making full use of the expansive, multi-cultural complex that is the DDP. The exhibition will run from 18 September 2020 until 28 March 2021.

Designed by Zaha Hadid, the DDP is a multi-cultural complex located in the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station in Seoul. Described as a place where “design trends begin and various cultural exchanges take place”, it was featured in the New York Times’ “52 Places to go in 2015”, and since opening has established itself as a landmark in Seoul.

In the fall of 2020, teamLab will transform the DDP into an immersive, interactive space where visitors can contemplate the continuity between themselves and the world. Through teamLab: LIFE, the art collective hopes to explore the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art, created using digital technology.

“Nature brings us both blessings and disaster, and with the progress of civilisation, there are benefits and negative implications: nature and civilisation are always connected,” said teamLab. “There is no absolute malicious intent or universal beauty. There is no easy way to understand this relationship and no simple way to arrange our feelings and our sensitivities towards it. Nevertheless, we want to affirm that we are alive regardless of the situation. Life is beautiful.”
