Memory of Nam June Paik
Lim Young Kyun formed a relationship with Nam June Paik while studying at New York University and the International Center of Photography, and took several pictures of Paik’s artistic career since the 1980s. This work shows John Cage in 1998, seated in his studio in Manhattan, New York. Lim could take a picture of Cage through Paik’s introduction to the artist. Paik first met Cage in 1959 at Darmstadt and stated that his life could be divided into Before Cage and After Cage. Paik also presented a performance called Hommage à John Cage in 1959.
