Tadao Ando’s Works in Korea 1- Yumin Art Nouveau Collection (Genius Loci)

For Tadao Ando, light, wind, rain are important elements for his works, and the architecture is a medium for people to experience their presence.

Should I be considered lucky since in the two occasions of my visits to Genius Loci, I have got to experience the place the fullest due to the weather? (That is, bad weather days.)

My first visit is on a windy and rainy day in 2016. (You might say a typical day on Jeju.) At that same, Genius Loci was then a place for meditation. There were three different spaces for meditation inside. The first one was “Diary” by artist Kyeongwon Moon, through which we get to appreciate everything in life is in a cycle by observing the life cycle of a tree. The second one was Yesterday’s Sky, which allows us to reflect on yesterday through the projection of yesterday’s sky onto the ground. And the third one was Landscape of Today serves as a medium to meditate through the real time image of Ilchulbong.

My second visit in 2018 was again on a typical Jeju windy day (well, at least this time there was no rain), so on both visits, I was forced by nature to enter into the indoors environment as soon as possible.

When I went inside, I found it was totally different from what I had expected from my last visit, and I understood why the sign was changed to Yumin Art Nouveau Collection (유민미술관) outside. The exhibits were changed from those designed for meditation to glass artworks from the Art Noveau period, and the galleries became Inspiration Gallery, Masterpiece Gallery, Peak of Art Nouveau Gallery and Lamp Gallery for the artworks.

Jeju’s “Three Abundances” (wind, women, rock) is too famous not to make a presence here in architectures designed to emphasize the natural environment. The gardens in the museum was divided into 3 different parts, rock garden constructed with volcanic rocks, circular garden designed like a women’s embrace, and wind garden- a cubic structure in which wind flows.

Tadao Ando likes to use walls and staircases as transition and to hide the beauty in the next part of his work for the viewers to discover on their own. (Spoiler alert!) The most interesting part of Genius Loci is how we can see Seongsan Ilchubong in a “viewfinder” after we walk past a walkway with water falling from both sides.

I like the place in my first visit more, the simpler exhibits, but I guess it can cater for more viewers with different tastes now. For viewers who wish to see more exhibits, there is the Art Nouveau collection, and for others, it has kept some of the elements for contemplation of the nature.

A lot of people may think about Japan if they want to see Tadao Ando’s works, actually there are a few pieces of his works in Korea too, and there are 3 in Jeju Island. If you are interested in Tadao Ando, make sure you put Jeju Island on your itinerary in your trip to Korea.

安藤忠雄韓國作品 1- Yumin Art Nouveau Collection (Genius Loci)


是這樣的話,我兩次造訪他設計的Genius Loci都有幸遇上讓我的旅程增添色彩燦爛的天氣。

第一次去的時候在2016年4月大風大雨的一天,Genius Loci那時是一個冥想空間,建築裡面有三個不同的冥想空間。第一個是文敬媛作家的「日記」,通過觀察這作品中樹的生命循環,讓我們了解世界萬事皆有其循環。第二個是「昨天的天空」,讓我們透過投射在地上那昨日的天空,回想昨天。第三個是「今日的風景」,則是讓我們觀察實時投射的日出峰景像來進行冥想。2018年3月初再訪,雖然沒下雨,但也是濟州典型超大風的一天,兩次都像要逼我快點進去室內的環境裡。

躲進室內之後,發現這地方跟我上次來的時候已經完全不一樣。這時才赫然明白為什麼門外寫著的變成了Yumin Art Nouveau Collection(유민미술관維民美術館)。原來裡面的展品換成了一些新藝術(Art Noveau)的玻璃藝術品,之前的冥想空間被換成了靈感之廊、名作之廊、新藝術全盛期之廊和燈之廊。

現在維民美術館內的玻璃藝術品展覽(左)以前Genius Loci內的展品「昨天的天空」(右)

濟州的三多(風 、女人 、石頭)可能真的太有名,跟Pinx Biotopia的風水石博物館一樣,這裡也用了這些元素來突顯濟州獨特的地方。博物館的庭院將它們轉化成為三個不同的部分:火山石構成的石園,象徵女人懷抱的圓形花園,讓風流動在其中的立方結構。

安藤安雄不喜歡一次過把所有都表現出來,他喜歡用牆壁,階梯等的轉折,讓大家突然發現隱藏的美。(”劇透”注意 !)這個建築最具特色的一個地方,就是通過瀑布通道後,會看到一個把城山日出峰收進去的觀景器。

改成了Yumin Art Nouveau Collection之後再訪,相比之下,我是比較愛以前更樸素的冥想空間,不過現在這樣應該可以比較大眾化吧?可以顧及不同的人的喜好,想看到更多的展品的遊客應該也可以得到滿足,同時也保留了一些之前的那些讓訪客靜觀大自然的原素。

Little House in a Forest: A bold and ambitious attempt from the leading Korean variety team

Looking at the sunlight through the leaves.

Gazing at the heavy rain outside the window.

Listening to the flowing river.

Savouring the flavour of a single kind of food.

When was the last time you did all these?

Mindfulness originated from various religion (contemplation in Christianity and Zen in Buddhism), it has been widely used in areas of psychological health, stress release and pain medicine. For city dwellers, how many of us had the time to really get the space to experience its benefits?

This team (from the leading Korean variety PD Na Young Seok team) took a risk at the ratings to create such a space for us.

The two subjects of experiments were sent to live in a small house in a forest, to see if they can be more happy there. It is labelled a “documentary”, but there are missions like a regular variety show, the difference is these missions are not just for the two artistes, they are also what the team want for us to experiment in our life. For example, the first mission was minimalism, throwing away the excesses in our life.

The choice of the subjects is really good (for the big contrast in their original life), one carrying one backpack and one carrying two suitcases to the forest. No matter which type of person you are now, you can get healed and happiness in the process.

PD Na said they did not try to make the show amusing, this show hoped to help viewers concentrate in the sound of wind and water, and the team hopes that viewers would make viewers sleepy when they watched the show.

I think they are successful. Without this show, I would probably never have noticed the difference between the sound of burning wood under different humidity.

This team (which has also produced the Dictionary of Useless Knowledge) carried a sense of mission in the shows they produced, I think they took a even higher risk here to produce a show without trying to make it interesting at all.

For me, it is a very successful attempt, after just one episode, it has already become one of my favourite shows in the PD Na team series. (The other two include Youth over Flowers and Dictionary of Useless Knowledge.)









靜觀 (Mindfulness)這種起源可以追溯到不同宗教傳統(例如:基督教/天主教的默觀,佛教的禪修),近年廣泛應用於心理健康,減壓,痛症治療等範疇。但對於城市人來說,到底有多少人有空間可以靜下來體驗它的好處?







P.S. 看完這部,對蘇志燮好感大增。他在節目裏看的這本 死亡是什麼, 我找了韓文版試閱了一點,好像真的是不錯的一本書,但好像找不到這本的中文版?

美食推薦- 濟州海螺粥 Jeju Food Recommendation- Bomaljuk (Topshell Rice Porridge)


進去裡面看到少女時代秀英的簽名,我點了最貴的海螺粥 보말죽 (因為之前就在一些韓國部落格看到說海螺粥比鮑魚粥好吃很多。)

We went to Hyeopjae Beach quite late in the afternoon, not a lot of restaurants were open, so we just randomly went to his place.

We saw the autograph of Soo Young (from Girls’ Generation) on the wall, and I chose to eat the most expensive dish- Bomaljuk (Topshell Rice Porridge), as I have read on Korean blogs before that this is really very delicious, much more so than abalone porridge.


And it was REALLY VERY DELICIOUS! Even though it is a bit expensive, but it is worth the price. Really even more delicious than the abalone porridge I ate before, and I ate in a rather famous place, you can check out the details here too.

美食推薦- 濟州鮑魚粥-五祖海女之家 Food Recommendation- Jeju Abalone Porridge- Ojo Haenyeoui Jip


鮑魚粥是濟州有名的美食。我在濟州旅行吃過兩家網上都有人說不錯的鮑魚粥,就是這家海女之家和李家鮑魚,我覺得這家比較清淡有鮑魚的味道,對我來說,李家鮑魚(이가전복)就太濃太咸,所以我是比較推薦這家,但如果你本身喜歡濃和咸一點的, 或許你會更愛李家。(五祖海女之家這家店離濟州市比較遠,鄰近日出峰。李家鮑魚比較近濟州市中心。)

Abalone Porridge is a famous dish in Jeju. I had two different abalone porridge in two different places, this one and Yi Ga Abalone 이가전복. I like this Haenyeoui place more, the porridge has more distinct abalone taste and less salty. This place is close to Ilchubong, quite far from Jeju-si, if you are going towards that direction, remember to go try this. (Yi Ga Abalone is a bit closer to Jeju-si. )

Highly recommend this Momguk (Gulfweed Soup 몸국) in this restaurant! Very delicious and special dish in Jeju! This restaurants opens till midnight, good place if you want to get a late dinner. There is a separate English menu for foreigners here.
