'The core concept behind this year's Pavilion is "Landscape of Differences", which metaphorically interprets the overall theme for the Biennale by situating the landscape as the space in which dreams operate, while differences connote conflict... This landscape goes beyond the binaries of East/West, tradition/identity, or international/regional and instead aims at a more productive discussion through the merging of differences between nature and art, art and its environment, as well as the difference between the artists and between the works. Subsequently, the vision behind "Landscape of Differences" takes difference as one axis in the Pavilion's goal to distinguish the Korean Pavilion from other national pavilions, but such difference is also a means to secure a more competitive and viable kind of national identity.' - Kim Honghee, commissioner of the Korean Pavilion.
