Koo Jeong A, Odorama Cities

6-30 September, South Korea

Launching 6 September at 20:23 KST, CIRCA presents Odorama Cities, a new video work by internationally acclaimed Korean artist Koo Jeong A.

Coinciding with Frieze Seoul, 3D animations will be shown across four screens, broadcasting for 3-minutes each evening at 20:23 local time until 30 September 2023.

Submit your Smell Stories using the below form to help inspire a new fragrance which will be unveiled at the 60th Venice Art Biennale in 2024, where Koo will present ‘Odorama Cities’ inside the national Korean Pavilion.

Curated by Jacob Fabricius (b.1970, Denmark) and Seolhui Lee (b.1987, South Korea), Koo Jeong A will transform the Korean Pavilion into an immersive Korean scent journey that features smells representing different rural areas, towns, and cities in South and North Korea. The Pavilion will create a captivating environment of intimacy, and through this scent journey make a national portrait of the Korean peninsula.
