After the success of its debut last year, Frieze Film is returning to Frieze Seoul 2023 with an expanded program of artists showing at four independent spaces across the city and on 

Curated by KIM Sung woo and Sungah Serena CHOO, this year’s program is titled ‘It was the way of walking through narrative’ and uses the idea of narrative in film and video as a methodology for excavation. In this context, the archaeological term refers to the uncovering and exposing of stories that have been eliminated or omitted from the official records, whether that be historical revisionism or the manipulation of images in contemporary media. The works present narratives that exist beneath the surface of everyday life often in the sphere of the imaginary or an alternate reality.

Fourteen artists are participating in Frieze Film Seoul 2023: AN Jungju, BAEK Heaven, Omyo CHO, HAN Uri, HONG LEE Hyun-Sook, JUN Sojung, KIM Daum, KIM Hyojae, KWAK So Jin, LEE Eunhee, Moojin Brothers, NAM Hwayeon, PARK Sunmin, PYO Minhong. Their works are being shown at four independent/non-profit spaces – Amado Art Space, BOAN1942 ARTSPACE BOAN 1, Insa Art Space and MOTHER Offline – with the works physically scattered and weaved back together.

This approach reflects the artworks’ own storytelling. By traversing non-linearly between time and space, the works dismantle, rearrange and combine memories and experiences to create new narratives and perspectives.This year’s Frieze Film lets audiences discover the unique language of film in art and discern other layers to the world we live in.
