:TV Garden Then & Now

Nam June Paik, TV Garden, 1974 (2000 version). Video installation with color television sets and live plants.

TV Garden, one of his seminal installations, illustrates Paik’s profound grasp of technology’s capacity for composition and the new aesthetic discourse that he helped to create. To enter the piece is to experience an uncanny fusion of the natural and the scientific, as hidden amid an undergrowth of live plants are video monitors of various sizes. All are playing the artist’s 1973 collaboration with John J. Godfrey, Global Groove, which montages performers from around the world into a gyrating visual mix, and the videotape’s sound track serves as musical and spoken counterpoint to the monitors’ flickers of light. TV Garden set a new standard for immersive, site-specific video installations.

Description /

<TV Garden>(1974/2008) is one of the most important works of Nam Jun Paik, creating life beats from primordial force of tropical forest in tune with rhythm of video fantasy. The <Global Groove> on TV monitors shows the power of music and dance with imaginative video image. Firstly conceived in his private exhibition of Bonino Gallery in New York in 1974, it made its appearance as a title of <TV Ocean> due to the lack of money to buy plants at that time. Later, its variations were made according to the environment of exhibition including Aberson Gallery in New York, Contemporary Museum in Chicago, Pompidou Center in Paris, Whitney Museum in New York, Metro Hall in Tokyo, Litan Museum etc.

<TV Garden> in NJP Art Center is surrounded by small corridors to look around with a short-ranged view, and it also has a characteristic to make the audience take an outlook of the entire forest from the upper side. Installed as part of Now Jump, the opening festival of NJP Art Center, it was built up by Young Cheol Lee, the artistic director of NJP Art Center and Sang Su Ahn, landscape architect, with the advice of Keigo Yamamoto, Japanese video artist, during a week starting from the 2nd of October in 2008.
