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 the performance Tribute to Charlotte Moorman presented at Paik’s retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Moorman, one of Paik’s artistic collaborators, died after a struggle against illness in 1991. Paik presented Moorman appearing in the ABC TV live show, while a singer performed Mozart’s Aria, and Paik himself played the piano in front of the stage.
