Lisa Sigal’s project serves as a monument to the civic history of Anyang by creating an intervention in the landscape where the city’s pools attracted millions of visitors and locals from 1936-1997. The project highlights the lost pools and the central role the area played as a major recreation destination in the development of Korea’s contemporary society. Sigal’s project enhances what is in plain sight by restoring a section of the retaining wall and seating area of the Manan-gak Swimming Pool built by architect Man-hee Han in 1968. Today, the fifty-meter cement pool wall and stone bleachers exist as the unremarkable backdrop of a parking area. In Sigal’s work, two sections of the pool wall and a center section of the original natural stone bleachers that they frame, are restored to highlight the effects of time and water on the original surface—the erosion caused by many winters on layers of painted blues (aquamarine, cerulean blue, and sky blue) and the beautiful remains which persevere. Sigal’s thoughtful intervention in the landscape reminds visitors and local residents of the fluid ways in which the built environment is erased, but can be resurrected.
