Korea Pavilion Wins Golden Lion Award at Biennale di Venezia

 

Korea has won the Venice Biennale’s premier Golden Lion award for its view on the development of modern architecture and its effect in Korea, a country that is divided into South and North at the demilitarized zone.

Gwangju Biennale has reportedly played an important role in the Korea Pavilion winning the prestigious golden lion award through participation of the president of Gwangju Biennale Foundation Lee Yong-woo at the opening ceremony of the Venice Biennale.

President Lee previously took part in the initial establishment process of the Korea Pavilion in Venice Biennale in 1995 with the cooperation of the world-renowned media artist, the late Baek Nam-jun.

Commissioner of the Korea Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, Mr. Jo Min-seok directed the ‘Named Design’ at the 2011 Gwangju Design Biennale and the joint producer of the Korea Pavilion with Jo, Mr. Bae Hyung-min was a head curator of the design exhibition in 2011.

Meanwhile, the jury for the Venice Architecture Biennale commended Korea’s “extraordinary achievement of presenting a new and rich body of knowledge of architecture and urbanism in a highly charged political situation”.
