Chung, Kyoung-Yeon Art Exhibition
January 18, 2010 — On our trip to the Seoul Art Center to see the “Science In Art” exhibit, we happened to pass this wonderful gallery exhibition by Kyoung-Yeon Chung. We happened upon a wall of tie-dyed gloves and were compelled inside to see more. The exhibit was free, which is always a plus. What I loved about the show was the unexpected feeling that all the hands gave off. The gloves were stuffed making it look like there were actually hands inside. The way the artist intertwined the fingers and put hand upon hand made it feel like a loving, supportive, compassionate gesture. It gave off a sense of acceptance, of all these hands joining and supporting each other.
Her more monochromatic designs with shades of brown and cream were also fascinating. Here are some photos from the brochure.
