Meeting between nature and art, Paralympic Fire Art Festa 2018
Exhibition environment improved, and docent program implemented for disable and non-disabled persons to join in the viewing

14(Wed), Mar, 2018

The festival that overcomes limitations and attains true harmony, the "Paralympic Fire Art Festa 2018" will begin on March 9th at Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung. Hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and organized by the Arts Council Korea, and the Gangwon Art & Culture Foundation, this event includes the meaning behind the Paralympics that seeks to create a society free from prejudice and will be launched as a unique festival for lowering the barriers between disabled persons and non-disabled persons, enabling them to all get along.


  Held against the scenic backdrop of Gyeongpo Beach, the "Paralympic Fire Art Festa 2018" exhibition hall is filled with works that are made from eco-friendly materials. Artists from 34 countries including Korea, the United States, China, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Australia, and Taiwan took part in creating works that represent the concept of harmony. This season, an existing 22 installation art works by the artist Im JiBin were added bringing the total to 23 works that can be viewed. The sculpture that measures 6 meters, titled "you are not alone" depicts a black and white bear embracing conveys a message of equality and harmony when connected with disabled persons, in line with the spirit of the Paralympics.


  Work is also underway to ensure that everyone has easy access to the viewing of the works. A deck installed inside the exhibition hall connects to 2 other decks that are being installed to create a new passageway.  Also, in front of the deck, an additional information board about the works was installed. This was done so that viewers requiring wheelchair access, or those that have a physical disability can more easily access the works.  The passageway also doubles as a photo zone and is a great spot for taking amazing photos of the works. Taking photos during the highly charged "Paralympic Fire Art Festa 2018" will be a good way to later cherish the memory. There is a customized docent program intended for both disabled and non-disabled visitors. Everything from the process for creating the work, to the hidden message left by the artist to the diverse stories tied in with the work make the viewing all the more interesting. It is available for anyone that would like to experience a real exchange. The docent operates two times each day, 11 am and 3pm. 


  There are art works that express infinite possibility and a culture of advanced viewing enabling an equality in viewing. Come and experience nature and works of art that make you feel something at the "Paralympic Fire Art Festa 2018," open March 9th through March 18th.
