No Longer GAGOK: room5↻

An intimate experience of gagok, the crystallization of Korean history

Based in Seoul, South Korea, Minhee Park is a traditional vocalist trained in the Korean Intangible Cultural Property of gagok. She works as part of the group parkpark, along with video artists and performers. Established as court music in the 18th century, gagok has continued down to the present day as an elegant lyrical form, though remains constricted by customs.

In this performance, the audience moves around small rooms while viewing each gagok performer in their own intimate space. Arranging the performers and audience into a one-on-one, equal relationship, the work carefully controls the overall flow of time to bring out a whole new form of expression in the space using song and gesture. Is this gagok, or no longer gagok? One thing’s for sure: it is an accomplished attempt to revive traditional culture in contemporary society.

Profile

Minhee Park (박민희)

Minhee Park is based in Seoul. She is a traditional vocalist trained in the Korean Intangible Cultural Property of gagok, a vocal music form believed to originate in Korea from around the 15th century and popular in salons in the 18th century. She creates an original style of contemporary performance based on her deep understanding of gagok. Her series No Longer Gagok is an attempt to unravel the musical form and sound of gagok conceptually. These performances are staged by parkpark, a group founded by Park exploring post-colonial approaches to traditional art and questioning the customary forms of performance.
