Billboard House 빌보드 하우스

John Körmeling suggested a structure with mega size signboard and residential space combined when he was invited to the First Anyang Pubic Art Project. If you look at the artwork, it looks like an outdoor signboard structure, but it hides a space with a balcony like a house behind it. When you go up to that space, and open the door and go out to the balcony, the audience becomes a part of a large billboard where grape, which is one of the agricultural products representing Anyang, is painted.

In the past, there used to be a line of vineyards around the Anyang Amusement Park where the Anyang Art Park is located currently; it was bustled with people who were looking for sweet Anyang grapes in July of each year when grapes are ripened. Still, grape is known as an agricultural product to symbolize Anyang, but the reality is that vineyards have almost disappeared from the area shoved off by industrialization and urbanization. As the grape of Anyang is fixed in our memories of the Amusement Park, we remember the [Billboard House] even though we have decided to dismantle it in 2013 with safety reasons and saved it in the digital archive.
