There are various archive exhibitions being held at art museums around the world. With the advent of Google, Youtube, digital cameras and many other technologies, the way of recording and showing the artworks has completely changed. In addition, archive exhibition related art has different characteristics than history museums and science museums. An art archive exhibition should be related to the displayed artworks, and it also has to be an artwork itself. It should consider different expectations of visitors such as new sensory experience or artistic knowledge. Also, the importance of archive sessions that can inform the context and meaning of the whole exhibition is growing because understanding individual artworks is becoming more difficult as many of them became more conceptualized. We have been working on the project to compose the archive session for “Robot Essay” exhibition opened in this April at Korea National Museum of Contemporary Art. In this paper, we describe how we created the work, Inter-shelf, for this archive session.
