this edition of framework:afield, entitled 'Nam June’s Spirit Was 
Speaking to Me' has been produced by aki onda. production notes:


We are pleased to announce a series of international Public Programs by 
artist Aki Onda in conjunction with his work for the 2022 Toronto 
Biennial of Art.

About the Work
Aki Onda has channeled the spirit of the late Korean artist Nam June 
Paik via radio transmission in "Nam June’s Spirit Was Speaking to Me" 
(2017/2021). Paik is known for his association with shamanism, a 
practice that consistently surfaces in his works. With a portable radio 
in hand, Onda communicates with his spirit from a distance—collecting 
field recordings of cryptic broadcasts and messages on anonymous radio 
stations. The series of séances has been conducted in different cities 
across the globe, beginning in Seoul, Korea in 2010 and continuing in 
Cologne, Germany in 2012, Wrocław, Poland in 2013, and Lewisburg, United 
States in 2014. This work was originally commissioned by documenta 14’s 
radio program “Every Time A Ear di Soun” in 2017.

 From March 26 to June 5, 2022, Aki Onda will present "Nam June’s Spirit 
Was Speaking to Me", through microbroadcasting and printed matter at the 
Toronto Biennial of Art. Broadcasting over two frequencies (88.5 FM and 
106.5 FM) that cover the exhibition site of 72 Perth Ave in Toronto, 
radios are placed as part of the exhibition to symbolize sound waves in 
the air. The audio work exists as invisible yet discrete and perceptible 
through the proper medium, recalling the ritual of channeling spirits. 
Bring your own radio to catch the frequencies.

Onda is also bringing "Nam June’s Spirit Was Speaking to Me" to the 
international radio waves in a series of international public programs. 
The program will play, uninterrupted and in its entirety of 50 minutes. 
For Onda, those broadcasts are a response to how Nam June Paik spread 
his ideas through TV cable networks and connected to a large number of 
people at a global scale.

About Aki Onda
Aki Onda is an artist and composer currently based in Mito, Japan, after 
living in New York for two decades. His works are often catalyzed by and 
structured around memories—personal, collective, historical—such as his 
widely-known project, "Cassette Memories" (2004–ongoing), drawn from 
three decades of field recordings. Crossing genres, he has been active 
internationally in art, film, music and performance. His artistic 
collaborators include Michael Snow, Ken Jacobs, Raha Raissnia, Loren 
Connors, David Toop and Akio Suzuki.
