Museum San

自從幾年前去日本看過安藤忠雄和James Turrell的作品以後對這兩位留下了深刻印象,google時突然發現原來韓國竟然也有一家博物館同時有兩人的作品,而且看tripadvisor大家都超推這博物館,所以決定下次要去這裡!

I was very impressed by Tadao Ando and James Turrell’s work after a trip to Japan a few years ago, and I suddenly found this museum with works of both of them in Korea, and the reviews on tripadvisor are all very good, I have decided that I have to go to this place in my next trip!

這家位於江原道原州的博物館也是一貫安藤忠雄風格的那種和大自然融合的水泥建築。

This museum in Wonju, Gangwondo was built under Tadao Ando’s signature concrete building in harmony with the surrounding natural environment.

James Turrell是有名利用光來做裝置藝術的藝術家,我之前在日本看過超震撼。

James Turrell is famous for using light as the medium for his installation art works, I was left with a deep impression after I saw his work a few years ago.

前往方法:由首爾江南高速巴士站或東首爾巴士站坐車到原州(大概九十分鐘),然後乘搭穿梭巴士或的士(的士25分鐘車程,20000W左右)前往,穿梭巴士時間表可以參看博物館網頁。(英文網頁跟韓文的時間表不一樣,我問了以後那裡的職員說會改英文的時間表,不過不確定之後是不是真的會改,所以大家要小心一點。)

How to get there: From Gangnam Express Bus Terminal or East Seoul Bus Terminal to Wonju (about 90 minutes), then take either shuttle bus or taxi (25 mins, 20000W for taxi) to the museum, you can check the latest shuttle bus timetable on the museum website. (The timetables on Korean web and English web are different when I went, the staff there said they will change it later, I am not sure if they will do that, so be careful and ask if you have doubts.)

新增2017年四月的照片和後記 Added after my visit in April 2017

購票進入正門以後,首先會經過花的庭園,另一邊是雕塑的庭院,還會經過一排竹樹。

After buying the ticket and entering the museum complex, visitors will walk past in between Flower Garden and Sculpture Garden first and also a short path lined with bamboo trees.

如果我早幾天去沿途應該會有更多櫻花吧,過了這一段,就到了水的庭院,然後才可以到達主博物館。

If I went a few days earlier, then I should be able to see more cherry blossoms. After walking past this part, we will arrive at the Water Garden and then the main museum.

Inside the main museum, there is the paper museum and some modern art exhibitions.

主博物館裡包括了韓紙博物館,還有一些現代藝術品,現代藝術品的展覽是會更新的,可以留意他們的網頁最新的展覽是什麼。

在主博物館出來可以看到這裡,這一個山水和建築構成的畫面,根據博物館導覽員的介紹是孔劉拍Kanu廣告的地方。

From the main museum , we can see this cafe with water and mountains as the background. According to the museum guide, this is the place where Gong Yoo filmed the Kanu CF.

另一邊的門出去會到了石的庭院,這裡設計的靈感來自新羅時代的王陵,穿過這個庭院就可以到達了James Turrell的展覽部份。

From the other side of the door, we can go to the Stone Garden, the design of this place is inspired by Shilla Royal Tombs, and we can arrive at the James Turrell Exhibition after we walk past this garden.

下面這張應該是下雪後拍的照片吧?是完全另一個感覺。

This picture below should be taken in winter after snow? Looks like a totally different place!

James Turrell這部份的展覽是另外付費的,而且不讓拍照的(所以沒有照片),裡面的展覽跟我在日本直島看過的差不多。如果你以前沒有看過,我超推這個用光當藝術媒體的藝術家的作品。對我來說,在這裡最特別的是沿著樓梯走出Horizon Room的天窗,可以看到整個Oak Valley的風景,我去的時候是櫻花期最後幾天,可以從高處飽覽整個山谷滿佈的櫻花的風景。(可能渡假村其他地方也可以看到類似的風景,但博物館裡我就只在這裡看到。)

Admission to the James Turrell Exhibition costs extra, and photography is not permitted inside (so that is why I did not have any pictures from inside that area), the exhibitions are similar to the ones I have seen before in Naoshima, Japan. If you have never seen it before, it is highly recommended. Amazing art exhibition with unimaginable use of light. The most unforgettable experience here for me is the view from the window up in Horizon Room, I saw the view of the Oak Valley decorated with cherry blossoms. (Maybe this view can be seen from other places in the resort, but I only saw this beautiful view from the museum here.)
