Summary

A review of Nam June Paik at Tate Modern, explores the exhibition room by room.

Room One: Introduction, reading notice "Nam June Paik 1932-2006, played a leading role in bridging the gap between artist and technology. Always innovative his work encompassed a variety of artistic genres: sculpture, music, performance and live broadcasting. Regarding the exhibits: on the wall an untitled drawing Moon and Buddha (so it is titled) and another TV Buddha. Ink on paper 1978. In calligraphic swept brush lines describe the portly body of a seated god. Pitched in an arc from above it finishes in a number eight double loop. Apparently it was made in an instant, like the flow of a Zen master. When asked about his practice Paik replied "I am aware of Zen, but I am an artist: I react to Zen in the same way I react to the music of Johan Sebastian Bach."
