SEOUL -- A national museum hosts a 10-month multiverse arts exhibition to attract visitors through the convergence of art and technology. Visitors will experience a borderless new world that was created with drones, virtual reality and robots.

The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Seoul said in a statement that "MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse" will open on February 12. The exhibition involves six teams of South Korean artists including "Kimchi and Chips," "Hoonida Kim" and Kwon Ha-youn. Each team will take turns to display its artwork until the end of 2021.

Kwon, a 40-year-old artist who explores visual effects, will open the curtains of the exhibition through a VR art piece. The audience can experience how real and virtual worlds establish an organic relationship. Through other pieces and performances, the visitors can create their own robots, interact with drones that autonomously fly around the museum. A mechanical piece that consists of 99 mirror devices will be displayed to mimic the shape of the sun using natural elements such as fog, wind and light.
