There’s an exhibition of contemporary Korean and British artists at the Lounge Gallery in London E8, right now. From the Lounge Gallery website:
Lounge Gallery | 28 Shacklewell Lane | London E8 2EZ | www.lounge-gallery.com
8 – 24 September 2006, Wed-Sun 1-6pm or by appointment.
The show, in media as diverse as collage, paintings, printmaking, drawing, film and installation, is an overview of contemporary art from two cultures. It draws on a starting point which is not defined by notions of cultural identity. Instead, it explores human, social and geographical experience in the context of a global culture.
Korean artists represented are
- Kim Si-Yeon (김시연) (image above)
- Park Hee-seop (박희섭)
- Byun Jae-eon (변재언)
- Lee Myoung-jin (이명진)
- Lee Seung-ah (이승아)
- Lee Joong-keun (이중근)
- Jang Hee-Jeong (장희정) and
- Hong Soon-Myeong (홍순명)
