Théâtre des Lumières (Gustav Klimt)
The fall season is perfect for going to museums and art galleries.
Currently showing at Walkerhill's "Théâtre des Lumières," the Gustav Klimt Seoul exhibition has been receiving rave reviews.
There is a possibility of taking a free shuttle to Walkerhill Hotel, where the "Théâtre des Lumières" is held.
If you're taking subway Line 5, get out at Gwangnaru Station's Exit 2 and wait for the bus in front of the Gwangjang-dong Sports Park. The bus stops every 15 minutes.
Get off the bus, enter the building by the gate on the right, and descend to Level B1. This will bring you to the Exhibition Hall.
You can purchase tickets and use lockers right next to the photo shoot area. The first three hours of parking are free, and each further ten minutes charges 1,000 won.
You might notice short biographies of Yves Klein and Makart on the walls as soon as you walk in, besides longer ones of Gustav Klimt, the main artist.
The breathtaking introduction heightens expectations.
The first of four shows, Klimt's Gold in Motion runs for 30 minutes. The total time spent playing is relatively short.
The roughly 20-meter-tall, two-story exhibition hall is 3,000 square meters and was formerly a theater.
showing the theatre productions that took place in the space before it became an exhibition hall.
When describing the "Théâtre des Lumières," the word "immersion" is spot on. It was incredible to see the entire room packed with exquisite works of art.
I couldn't take my eyes off the dynamic scenery, and the excellent music playing in the background further contributed to the overall image.
Taking the left fork will reward you with a more scenic look at the Théâtre des Lumières.
See what it looks like from the back here. This perspective position shines while seeing a recurring pattern.
If you keep going straight, you'll come to a vantage point that's almost like a terrace.
From this vantage point, I had a complete panorama of the inside of the Théâtre des Lumières.
As the movie spread across the floor, I could not help but feel like I was a part of the piece itself.
Inverted, the theater's immense light becomes more of a spectacle.
The couch offered a lot more comfort than it looked like at first glance.
The mirror chamber by the stairwell was playing the short programs "Verse" and "Memories."
The gallery room next to the Théâtre des Lumières includes informational panels on the works on display in the theater.
On the right is the Green Room, which is like an actor's waiting room and is a classy spot to shoot selfies.
"Began when performers painted it green to ease their nerves before a show."
Amazingly, the mirror background moved in rhythm with the activities happening outside.
Don't miss out on some fun after the show by not checking out the goods.
Seeing the high-quality paintings on display at the Théâtre des Lumières is a great way to round up the fall season, so please do go.
