The Spring Wind of Hope in Blowing
As the year-end art trail project, Seoul installed the piece named ‘The Spring Wind of Hope in Blowing’ of a contemporary artist Yin Song-ja on the exterior of the government office building. In celebration of the year 2019 of peace and hope, citizens who enter and exit the central government office through the northern gate will get to appreciate this art work. The project features lights that contrast with the urban appearance of the structure and its harmony with the subdued hanji. The work expresses the beautiful course of the people’s hope blowing through winds and becoming wings to fulfil dreams. This hope then blossoms into flowers to anticipate a promising 2019 for everyone. The pattern that abstracts the spring breeze of hope forms an image associated with clouds or wings and creates a floral appearance. This structure then reconstructs the space with light and shadows.
