Exhibition visit: NyLon – the KCCUK’s exchange show with New York

November’s exhibition at the KCCUK was a joint project with the Korean Cultural Service New York. Four artists, two from each city.

Representing London were Shin Meekyoung, who had a huge solo show at the Haunch of Venison in March 2011, and Je Baak, who has recently been showing at HADA Contemporary and Asia House.

The highlight of the show was Hong Buhm’s magical mobile made out of copper pipes and mirrors entitled Hide & Seek (2010-11):

The sort of thing that mesmerises you.

Jean Shin’s entertaining installation with plastic computer keys occupied a lot of wallspace. Here’s a detail:
