Libraries are recognized as spaces that cater to guests' visual senses. Ho-wever, various senses in libraries include the sound of flipping pages, the new book smell and the texture of a used book's spine. Busan Metropolitan Library holds a special exhibition on the second floor, entitled "Sense Transference," to highlight these unique sensations until April 24.
△"Listen to stories"
This exhibition presents media installations using video, light and sound, including three pieces by Jung Manyoung and four by artist Lim Bong-ho. Artist Jung Manyoung's work "Soribi" demonstrates the sound of rain falling on a tin roof, "Circulating sound" embodies the sound after a tap has been turned on and "Listen to stories" expresses a world inside of books by placing them between ocean and mountain sounds. Artist Lim Bong-ho displays "Flaw of vow" and "Live=evil," which utilize hwatu cards (Korean "flower card" game), "Light novel" using the sound of flipping pages and "Social lesson 1," which warns readers of the hazards of misinformation.
Hours: Tuesday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
