The 7th Seoul International Media Art Biennale (Mediacity Seoul 2012) is pleased to announce the list of artists and exhibition theme for Spell on you. By inviting more than 50 artists from 17 countries, this exhibition will bring together an eclectic range of media art including installation, film, and interactive media. The title draws inspiration from ‘I Put a Spell on You,’ a blues song performed by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, who is considered to be one of the early pioneers of ‘Shock Rock’ during the 1950s. This exhibition pays homage to his startling performance of this song, which expresses one’s primordial human desire to entice and possess an other by summoning a spell.
