Various Artists - Words at an Exhibition: an exhibition in ten chapters and five poems
Very chique double vinyl edition commissioned by the Programme Committee of the Busan Biennale 2020. You could call it a soundtrack album as it features the 11 musicians involved in the project. The concept of Words at an Exhibition was a collaboration between visual artists, writers and musicians. You can see the outcome of that here.
Anyway, what you get here is the sound works, not all of them very exciting to my ears, the ones standing out are Taehyun Choi on side B, and Astrid Sonne and Kim Gordon on Side C. Booklet with credits included, everything is in Korean as well as English.
Gatefold cover, black print on metallic silver sleeve, text deep black in letterpress.
