The Silver Grass Natural Art Exhibition will be held around Pyeonghwa Park’s Nanji Pond at the Seoul World Cup Park from December 20, 2018, through January 2019. The seven artworks are to be installed along the 240-meter trail lined with eighty-one zelkova trees planted in front of the pond. The silver grass that had presented visitors with breathtakingly beautiful silver waves at the World Cup Park will be reborn as objects of natural art in line with seven different concepts. Three of these works, in particular, celebrate the 2019’s being the Year of the Pig. Lucky pouches, a family of pigs, and a flower pig will greet visitors as a sign bestowing good fortune to all. Visitors can also meet a family of frogs that actually inhabit the World Cup Park.
Seoul plans to clear the silver grass this winter to welcome in new sprouts, however, rather than incinerating the grass, this piece of nature is to be transformed into a work of art to give everyone a unique attraction to enjoy. Trimmed tree branches and other objects of nature found during the park’s preparations for winter were also used during the creation process.
Seoul will also operate a separate workshop program from January 9-28, 2019, at the Noeul Center in World Cup Park, that puts to use an array of dried flowers, broom cypress, as well as natural objects. Those seeking to participate in the program can RSVP through the Seoul Public Service Reservation system (http://yeyak.seoul.go.kr/).
