Short film with 3D video and immersive 3D audio, 2017
For the work Decades Apart commissioned by the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain for the exhibition Highlights, PARKing CHANce has conceived an original immersive 3D sound and image installation. Based on the set of Joint Security Area (JSA) (2000), a movie by Park Chan-wook, new images were filmed for the work and sound treated in a very surprising way to give the visitor a total experience: "As opposed to the somewhat hopeful mood around the time when the film Joint Security Area was released, North and South Korea's relationship has deteriorated in the past seventeen years. As if reflecting the current situation, the Panmunjeom set built for the film's production has become a decrepit sight, and even this is soon to be demolished. Through the use of 3D cinematography and the montage of the original sondtrack, we wanderaround this ghost house that feels like both a reality or a dream, somewhere in between the present and seventeen years ago."
The airtist duo PARKing CHANce is made up of two brothers, Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook and korean media artist Park Chan-kyong. Their family name, "Park," and the shared first syllable of their given names, "Chan," are used in their team name, "PARKing CHANce," which literally means finding a place to park. True to their name, PARKing CHANce is on the lookout for opportunities to work on special projects that are not part of their usual work as indivisuals. As a team, they are interested in unique projects with a more experimental and artistic focus such as short films, documentaries, and music videos.
