Fendi Renaissance Anima Mundi returns at the Dongdaemum Design Plaza, Seoul

RETURNING for another instalment, Fendi Renaissance – Anima Mundi partners this time with Sejong Soloists; a world-class, contemporary chamber orchestra. Ending a tough year that effected everyone globally, the inspiration behind the performance was to share a positive message for us all to enjoy. A message of regeneration centred around art, fashion and music, bringing everyone together through one performance.

Sejong Soloists

Beginning the musical adventure in Rome and then crossing all the way over to Shanghai and Tokyo, the fourth performance is set in Seoul. The Sejong Soloists orchestra plays Concerto No. 3, RV 310 from L’estro armonico; written by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi.

Sejong Soloists outside the Dongdaemum Design Plaza

Performed at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, designed by British-Iraqi Zaha Hadid, renowned architect and artist. The building is the world’s largest three-dimensional amorphous structure with curves that are widely recognised globally. Mirroring the Plaza, the message Fendi hope to employ is “A balanced arrangement with pliability” – meaning, they hope to share the idea of smooth coexistence between the new and the old, tradition and innovation.

With the new year fast approaching, the performance is a reminder that after a year that no one could have predicted, there is always some beauty in the darkness.
