Paradise City 패러다이스 시티
Paradise City (2016) is a video work of four separate solo performances from Anyang playing the song by the same name - originally released by Guns N' Roses - in four different locations in the city. An installation inside Anyang subway station shows the performers playing na excerpt of the song simultaneously on four existing commercial screens, integrated into the advertisements. In the single-channel version at Kim Chung Up Museum, musicians are intercut to perform a single, seamless song. The lyrics of the song make reference to a wish to leave a world full of competition cheating,a wish to return home - the symbol of an ideal world. Since the name Anyang means "land of happiness" (paradise)"a utopian land of freedom comfort," the artist thought it fitting to have local musicians learn this songpresent a recording of the beloved rock an them in this city to meditate upon the pastpresent of Anyang imagine a utopian future. If musicians play music to secure leisurely energy future dreams, could the individuality the distinct characteristics shown by these performers defien the ideal future of Anyang?
